You can use the speech template and fill it in & there is also an example attached.
The steps in creating a persuasive outline are similar to the steps in creating an informative outline. However, the organization is a bit different. For the persuasive speech, you will be following an organizational pattern called “Monroe’s Motivated Sequence.” In this organization, you separate your speech into 5 parts – Attention (introduction) → Needs (problems section) → Satisfaction (solution section) →Visualization → Actions (and conclusion).
A. You will need 4 or more credible sources for each major speech.1. Focus your research on books and/or scholarly journals, which undergo anextensive editing process before they’re published.a. Opposing Viewpoints is a database that you might consider – it hasinformation on a wide range of relevant, persuasive topics.b. Try to avoid using websites whenever possible, as websites can be created and published without undergoing any form of editing or evaluation. The information may or may not be credible.c. 1 of your 4 sources may be from a newspaper, magazine, .gov site, long as you assess the content for reliability, recency, and relevance.B. As you research, start to think about how the information can be organized into outline form. What’s the problem? How do we solve it?1. Save any research that elaborates on a significant problem as well as researchthat “proves” this problem can be solved with the solution you intend toadvocate for.a. All speeches should alternate between statistics and specific stories (so that the information is credible, yet interesting). Look for both while researching.2. Intro/Conclusion: Look for fascinating statistics or stories that would make for strong attention getters and concluding statements. Make a note of them.
I. Attention (basically, your introduction): Your introduction should focus ONLY on the PROBLEM you’re discussing NOT on the solution (because you don’t want to reveal the solution of your speech until after you’ve discussed the problem in detail). As such, you’ll list your purpose statement at the top of the outline so that I know your goal, but you won’t say it out loud since it reveals too much about your topic. Be strategic. In the “Attention” section (aka Introduction), you’ll include:Attention getterThesis statement (summarize the problem you’re covering, not the solution)Credibility statementRelevance statementPreview statement (preview your main points but DON’T reveal what the specific solution will be; You can simply preview that you’ll eventually explain a solution to the problem).II. Needs (basically the problem section): This is the most important step and requires the most research.First, link to one of our basic needs on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Which one connects to your topic most clearly? When our basic human aren’t met, problems start to occur…Explain the problem.What are the repercussions/consequences of this problem? Support your Needs section with LOTS of research and examples.How does this problem affect your audience?III. Satisfaction (basically the solution section) – Reveal your solution (Choose ONE, specific solution to solve your problem….don’t confuse your audience or overcomplicate your speech by trying to review multiple).Explain how your solution works and how it minimizes/eliminates the issues that you discussed in your Needs section. Use research and examples, NOT just your personal opinion.At the end, introduce any counterarguments that exist against your topic. How can you overcome these counterarguments?IV. Visualization – Ask your audience to visualize what reality looks like with AND without your solution. It should be apparent that your solution creates a better reality.V. Actions (basically your conclusion)Actions – Introduce several specific actions or steps that we should take to make sure your solution happens immediately. Make sure they’re realistic and specific.Restate your thesisReview points.Include a memorable conclusion.
