USE VIDEO FOR PAGE ESSAY
Develop an outline for this informative speech. Make sure to include an introduction, thesis statement, at least three supporting points, and a conclusion. Once you have your outline, begin to flesh out your speech so that you will be comfortable in your delivery. Practice in front of a mirror or video record your speech to have a sense of your speaking style and appearance. As you watch your delivery, ask yourself:
Is the content clear and effective?
Are your main ideas clearly phrased?
Do you support those ideas with relevant evidence?
Is your vocabulary appropriate and effective?
Try to be aware of how your delivery emphasizes the key points and evidence that you want your audience to recognize. Is your tone appropriate for your content? Are your pauses deliberate and appropriate rather than gaps in your presentation? Don’t be afraid to repeat the process until you have perfected your presentation.

Elevator Speech Directions
Description
An elevator speech is a brief, conversational speech designed to gain the attention of an audience with the goal of securing an appointment to discuss the topic in more detail.
This assignment requires you to design and present an original 2 minute “personal pitch” elevator speech in which you describe yourself and what you have to offer a prospective employer in your chosen career field/area and what you like about your chosen career/area.
Objectives
To practice techniques of building confidence as a speaker.
To apply the key steps of designing and presenting a speech to a real-life speaking situation.
To observe guidelines for ethical speech.
Process
After completing the reading and viewing assignments associated with the elevator speech, follow the key steps below to complete your Elevator Speech Worksheet and design and present your speech.
1. Consider your audience. For this assignment, your audience is a prospective employer in your chosen career field/area. You must keep this audience in mind throughout the speechmaking process.
2. Select and narrow your topic. For this assignment, the topic is you as a potential employee in your chosen career field/area.
3. Determine your general and specific purposes. The general purpose of a personal pitch elevator speech is to inform. The specific purpose of your elevator speech might be stated as, “At the end of my speech, the listener will invite me for an interview.”
4. Develop your central idea. The central idea summarizes your speech in a single sentence. The central idea of your elevator speech should include the contributions you could make to the prospective employer’s company/area and why you are interested in the employer’s company/area.
5. Generate the main ideas. The main ideas are the key points in a speech; these are derived from the central idea. Your Elevator Speech will have two main ideas. One main idea will be the contributions you could make to the prospective employer’s company/area. The other main idea will be why you are interested in the employer’s company/area.
6. Gather supporting material. Supporting material includes facts, examples, definitions, and quotations from others. Supporting material for your elevator speech will most likely include specific examples that illustrate your strengths and specific facts about the employer’s company/area that support your interest in the company/area. Remember that sources must be acknowledged in the speech.
7. Organize your speech. Every speech, including the elevator speech, should have an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. The introduction gains audience attention, previews the major ideas in the speech, and provides audience members with reasons to listen to the speech. The body presents and supports the main ideas. The conclusion summarizes the main ideas and restates the central idea.
8. Rehearse your speech. You may not use speaking notes. This speech is about you, so you have no need for crib sheets. Practice your speech several times, preferably with a partner, before you record the speech. Be sure to time the delivery of your speech to make certain it falls within the 2-3 minute time limit. DO NOT READ YOUR SPEECH.
9. Audience Requirement: All speeches must be recorded in live video format; audio-only recordings are not allowed. Your audience may either be live and in-person or live and digital. In either configuration, your audience must experience your speech live and in real-time.
When recording your speech, make sure you are well-lit and not washed out with light from behind you. Ensure you record your speech on a tripod or solid surface. You must deliver your speech from a standing position, unless otherwise approved by your instructor. Your audience and your instructor must see you on camera at all times.
Students will be required to show the in-person audience at the beginning and end of each recorded in-person presentation. Students will not cut-in the audience to the recording; rather the recording will flow from showing the audience at the beginning of the speech, to the delivery of the speech, then back to the audience at the end of the speech with no breaks in the video.
Digital audiences must be viewable on-screen for the entire recorded presentation. The recording of the speech must display the student presenter and the complete digital audience for the entirety of the speech.
To earn a speech grade of C- or higher, all CA 109 students are required to record their graded speeches in front of a live audience, either in-person or digital, of at least five adult humans, age 18 or older.
10. NOTE: All CA 109 students are required to submit their written speeches to Turnitin. Failure to submit a written speech to Turnitin will result in a grade of zero for the “Ethicality” section of each speech rubric. Turnitin is an electronic text matching system that compares text in a student assignment against a database of sources. As students are required to produce original speeches – not copy other pieces of work – Turnitin is another resource for students and instructors to ensure students’ work is their own.
11. In Week 3, you will deliver your speech. Record your speech and upload it to your Group Discussion Board

Discussion Questions:
1. Question 1 (Chapter 9)
Each set of statements below represents the main points of a speech. For example, set A.1. and A.2. are the main points of speech #1; B.1., B.2., and B.3. are the main points of speech #2; and so on. Identify the organizational method used in each of the following sets of main points.
Speech #1
A.1. The philosophy of hacktivism revolves around free speech, human rights, and online civil disobedience.
A.2. The objectives of hacktivism are to expose the corruption and inner workings of governments and corporations.
Speech #2
B.1. In ancient Rome, the Colosseum hosted gladiatorial games and other kinds of popular entertainment.
B.2. In the Middle Ages, the Colosseum was occupied by religious groups and used as a cemetery.
B.3. In modern times, the Colosseum has been restored and turned into a tourist attraction.
Speech #3

C.2. The effects of progeria include the appearance of rapid aging, limited growth, and a shortened lifespan.
Speech #4
D.1. At the top of the rainforest is the emergent layer, where trees can be 200 feet tall.
D.2. Below the emergent layer is the canopy, where vegetation is so dense that it filters out 80 percent of the sunlight.
D.3. Beneath the canopy is the understory, where trees are less than 12 feet tall and grow large leaves to collect the small amount of sunlight.
D.4. At the bottom is the forest floor, where there are almost no plants because of the lack of sunlight.
Speech #5
E.1. Cyberbullying is a widespread national problem.
E.2. The problem can be solved by a combination of individual awareness and social action.
2. Question 2 (Chapter 10)
Following are four complete introductions from classroom speeches. Each has at least one flaw that keeps it from fulfilling all the functions of a good introduction. For each introduction:
identify the flaw (or flaws)
make specific suggestions for improving the introduction
Introduction #1
It is very hard to cuddle a fish. Fish won’t roll over or fetch the morning paper. You won’t find them curling up on your lap, chasing a ball of string, or rescuing a child from a burning building.Yet despite these shortcomings, lots of tropical fish have found their way into American homes. Fish have earned a spot next to the all-American dog and the cuddly kitten in the hearts of millions. Today I would like to explain how you can start a home aquarium and discover the pleasures of owning tropical fish.
Introduction #2
We have so much unused human potential. By improving the use of your time, you can have much more time for social activities. You can use your mental processes more fully, thereby improving your grades. You can also increase your physical stamina and improve your health. We must learn to know our bodies.
Introduction #3
A six-year-old collie lay battered and helpless by the side of the road. The car that hit her had broken her pelvis, dislocated her hip and smashed her jaw. It had also blinded her and she whimpered in pain and fear.
Unfortunately, this true story happens much too frequently because of the growing problem of pet overpopulation. Having grown up on a farm with animals of all kinds, I care deeply about their welfare and I have become aware through my veterinary courses on how serious the problem of pet overpopulation is.
Introduction #4
Every problem has at least two sides. When one side is right and the other side is wrong, the problem is easy to solve. But what if both sides have merit in their arguments? How do you solve these problems? Balancing the rights of everyone in an adoption is one of these problems.
The parents who give up the child have a right that all the information they disclose be kept confidential, while the adopted child has a right to know about the identity of his or her natural parents.
Today, I’d like to explore this problem with you and look at one approach to solving it.

Description
An informative speech increases the audience members’ understanding of a topic. For this speech, you will inform your audience about a significant popular culture product or personality from the last five years. “Popular culture (or “pop culture”) refers to the traditions and material culture of a particular society. [In first-world countries], popculture refers to cultural products such as music, art, literature, fashion, dance, film, cyberculture, television, and radio that are consumed by the majority of a society’s population. Popculture is those types of media that have mass accessibility and appeal” (Crossman, 2020).
This assignment requires you to design and deliver an original 4-5 minute informative speech, with supporting PowerPoint slides.
For this speech, you will inform your audience about a topic by answering the question:
What is the most significant popular culture product or personality from the last five years and why is that product or personality the most significant?
The ideas in your speech must be supported by evidence. A minimum of three viable, relevant, timely sources is required. For this speech, you will confine your research to newspapers from across the country. You may choose from the following online newspapers:
“LA Times”
