? How do I get better? And get better grades? REVISION! ?

Students who produce multiple drafts of assignments, and who revise based on peer and instructor feedback are more likely to learn, and earn better grades.

 

Each of the following workshops aims to improve your speech--that critical moment in front of the room--by giving you feedback from one-fifth of the audience and me.

 

 BE SURE TO use our advice to improve your speeches.

 

N3-4 Drafting Attention Getters for your Introductions  

 

Where? SMALL GROUP: YOUR BLOGS

When? Step One: Friday at Noon

            Step Two: Next Sunday at midnight

 

 

Step One: Write a sample attention getter for the Proposition of Fact Speech.

 

You now know the audience a little better, and have an understanding of their positions on your topic from the survey.

 

With this new information, and using the guidelines and examples listed under "INTRODUCTIONS" (LINKED TO YOUR LEFT), YOU WILL WRITE ONE DRAFT OF AN ATTENTION GETTER THAT RELATES TO THIS AUDIENCE AND YOUR TOPIC.

 

POST it to YOUR BLOG.

Remember, you must first log in as the author of the blog, using your username and password.

 

 

STEP TWO

READ YOUR GROUP MEMBERS' DRAFTS AND ANSWER THESE 3 QUESTIONS:

1. Is it engaging? Wuld it make YOU sit up and notice?

2. Is it related to our class DIRECTLY?

3. Is it related to your topic DIRECTLY?

 

POST YOUR RESPONSES TO THESE QS ON THEIR BLOGS.

REMEMBER, BLOGGER PREVENTS ANONYMOUS POSTINGS--YOU MUST SIGN IN 

 

 

N3-18 Drafting Objections and Refutations

As you learned today, a persuasive speech audience engages in a mental dialogue with the speaker—as you argue, they argue back, assess your evidence, credibility, pathos and reasoning (and your appearance, to be honest: Note to self: Don’t Wear “Funny” T-Shirts)

Controversial topics breed disagreement, even among experts.
Reasonable people disagree with you (in surveys, your research, etc.).

What should you do?

Use the Three RRRs Method
1. Raise their objection;
2. Respect their opinion;
3. Refute with evidence.

Step One: Post to this Blog HERE your best guess about what and how reasonable people will disagree (one sentence).
Then, write (one sentence) that challenges, with evidence (or your promise of evidence) that claim.
WHEN: By Friday at Midnight

Step Two: Evaluate your shiller groups’ postings. Are there more compelling objections? Are these the best refutations?
WHEN: BY Sunday at Midnight 

 

 N3-25 Draft Outline Workshop for Fact/Value Speech

 

Step One: By noon, FRIDAY, you should have posted your draft outline for the Fact speech to this  Blog.

This is a DRAFT -- it is your best guess about your main points--it is not the final decision.

This draft should include only

ONE the specific purpose statement:

"To persuade my audience that Phila. Public Schools are failing our children." (but substitute your topic)

and TWO the Main Points

I. PPS are failing because students are not learning.

II. PPS are failing because parents are not involved.

III. PPS are failing because teachers are frustrated.

IV. PPS are failing because they are focussed on test scores.

V. PPS are failing because they are mismanaged.

 

Remember: Here you simply make us miserable by talking about the problem, its causes and effects. DO NOT make us happy with your solution. That is the next speech.

 

Step TWO: Reply to your group members' drafts, posted HERE.

Do so by answering the following questions carefully:

1. Is it clear what is the student arguing for or against?

2. What are the strongest main points (reasons)?

3. What, if any, are the weakest main points?

4. Describe one technique the student can use to adapt this speech to you.

5. Does the student address problem only, no solutions. Policies?


N4-11 Draft Workshop for Policy Speech 

 

Step One: Post your DRAFT outline of your policy speech. Make sure you improve your policy speech based on our criticism of your fact speech.

 

SUGGESTED Organizational Strategy:

 

Main Point I: Problem (includes causes and effects)

Main Point II. Solution

 

Step Two: Reply to your group members' drafts. Do so by answering the following questions:

1. Does the solution address the problem?

2. Does it create any new problems?

3. How can the speaker make this last speech his or her best?
