PART II: Speech

 

Modules 1 through 4 Homework Assignments will be a continuation of the speech process.  You will construct your speech by answering the following prompt, which will be given at the beginning of each homework assignment.  This is a step-by-step process.  As long as you read the textbook, read the online material, and complete the activities, you will not encounter much difficulty.

 

Prompt: Childhood obesity is growing at an increasing rate.  Should fatty foods, such as potato chips, cookies, and soft drinks, be banned from elementary school?  Develop a persuasive speech that argues for or against banning fatty foods from elementary school.  You will construct a traditional, five-paragraph speech (introductory paragraph, 3 body paragraphs, concluding paragraph) that answers this prompt.  The total length of pages should not exceed 3 typed pages.

 

1.First step in developing a speech is prewriting.  Decide whether you agree or disagree to ban fatty foods from elementary school.

 

2.Next, make a list of as many reasons why you agree or disagree to ban fatty foods from elementary school.

 

3.Then try to see if any of those reasons can be grouped together.  Using the numbers (1), (2), and (3), number those reasons according to where they should appear in the body paragraphs.  For example, group (1) would appear in the first body paragraph, group (2) would appear in the second body paragraph, and group (3) would appear in the third body paragraph.

 

4.Create an outline using the model below.  You will skip the introduction and conclusion sections and will return to them in later modules.  Focus on the body section for now.
