The primary objective of this assignment is to inform your audience about a topic of interest to you. Be sure to provide the following information when drafting your outline:

  • General background information necessary for your audience to understand your topic
  • Explanation of why this is an issue of public interest

Seek to improve your organizational and delivery skills; you should be objective and neutral. This is not a persuasive speech, so do not share your opinion. You are to share information clearly with your audience so that they receive the information, understand it, and retain it.

Instructions
  1. Select a topic. Choose a topic that you have an interest in learning more about or a topic that you know quite a bit about already and you will be comfortable speaking about. The topic could be a sport, a hobby, a job, a disease, or any issue of public importance. The possibilities are endless.
  2. Find supporting materials. Use your knowledge of the topic first. Then, find outside sources such as books, articles, websites, and interviews of experts on your topic. You must include a minimum of five outside sources for your speech; at least one must not be from the Internet. You will need to cite your sources orally during your speech.
  3. Perform an audience analysis. Speaking effectively is greatly dependent on how well you analyze your audience and adapt your speech to them. Reflect on the demographic of the class and think about their interest and knowledge of your topic. The more audience-centered your speech is, the stronger your effects on your listeners, which will, of course, be reflected in your grade.
  4. Write an outline of your informative speech using the template below as a guide. Create a document that includes details for main and sub points. Using the template below, you should also include the following:
      1. Any key research or quotes (supporting material)
