DISCUSSION:

Part 1: Post a Response

(Remember to answer each part of the question with a minimum of one paragraph that is 5-7 sentences with limited grammatical errors.)

In 2013, imagine that your friend graduated from Better Business University, and the university’s president recently asked her to deliver this year’s commemorative speech. During her meeting with the university’s president, she learned the following information about the graduates:

  • 40% of the students have received job offers.
  • 35% of the students intend to continue their education.
  • 25% of the students are uncertain about their plans after graduation.

Based on this information, which one of the following visual aids do you think she should use to prepare her speech? Select one of the visual aids and provide a thorough explanation for your decision.

 

Part 2: Respond to a Peer

Read a post by at least one of your peers and respond, making sure to extend the conversation by asking questions, offering rich ideas, or sharing personal connections.

“When giving a commemorative speech, I believe the first image about the most popular jobs is the more effective visual aid. The information it contains will help those who are graduating, and it is clear and simple. The second visual aid is hard to process as a visual aid for a speech. It looks more like a visual you would see in an advertisement. It uses loud, busy colors and several font styles. The information is also not useful. These are graduates of a business college who have business degrees. This second aid seems to point to making you believe that getting a business degree is worth it. The first image may not apply to all the students, as some of them are not pursuing a career now, but it does apply to some of them, unlike the second visual aid.”

WEEK 10 DISCUSSION & RESPOND TO A PEER

DISCUSSION:

Part 1: Post a Response

(Remember to answer each part of the question with a minimum of one paragraph that is 5-7 sentences with limited grammatical errors.)

Reflect on your previous speeches and self-reviews and consider your growth in effective speaking skills. In which one of the following areas do you feel as if you experienced the most growth? Provide specific ways in which you improved in this area.

  • Introduction (gained audience’s attention).
  • Conclusion (reinforced central idea).
  • Strong eye contact and expressive voice.

 

 

Part 2: Respond to a Peer

Read a post by at least one of your peers and respond, making sure to extend the conversation by asking questions, offering rich ideas, or sharing personal connections.

Well, I would like to say when you are about to write your outline. Your introduction is therefore important. Having a great introduction gets your audience attention. Whereas, having a bad one does not. If you write a bad intro your audience will have a hard time understanding what your true speech is about. Leaving them confused. Also, they may be like why did we even attend this function, ceremony, birthday party and so on. This is the thing I truly improved on this class.

Another thing I like to remind is to keep your eyes on your audience. Keeping your eyes on the audience while giving your speech. Not only gives the audience positive vibes for you. Like appreciating in the work you have done. The audience may also give you a guidance on your next speech. You are about to write. Or for your future reference.

WEEK 11 DISCUSSION & RESPOND TO A PEER

DISCUSSION:

Part 1: Post a Response

(Remember to answer each part of the question with a minimum of one paragraph that is 5-7 sentences with limited grammatical errors.)

As you come to the end of COM201 and reflect on the speeches you delivered, which one did you think was most effective? Provide a thorough explanation for your choice.

  1. Introductory.
  2. Informative.
  3. Persuasive.
  4. Special occasion.

 

 

Part 2: Respond to a Peer

Read a post by at least one of your peers and respond, making sure to extend the conversation by asking questions, offering rich ideas, or sharing personal connections.

 

This class has been a roller coaster of emotions for me, and I have so much I have learned. For me, the most effective speech was the persuasive one. This speech record research, and cold hard facts. You had to have all the factual knowledge on your subject and where the knowledge came from down to a tee. That way your audience can find this information for themselves to see that they are making the best-informed decision possible. Honesty is key when persuading someone, I believe so with the persuasive speech I was able to provide research that could help persuade my audience and they would know that it was true. I think the least effective speech for me was the informative speech because there just too many facts and not enough time to fully explain them.

WEEK 2

Introductory Speech (elevator pitch)

Instructions:

Introductory Speech Outline

Overview

Strong oral communication skills will be valuable to you throughout your academic journey. They are in high demand by many employers. Creating an outline is critical to your success in crafting an effective speech.

For this assignment, you will create an outline. The speech based on your outline is due next week.

Instructions

  1. Select either Topic A or Topic B for your introductory speech.
  • Topic A: Elevator Pitch. Deliver an elevator pitch that describes your professional background and experience for a potential employer during a job interview.
  • Create an outline or speaking notes in Microsoft Word.
    • Download the Sample Outline [DOCX], which provides guidance for the structure of an outline.
    • Focus your speech on 2–3 main points so you’ll stay within the 2-minute time limit.
  • Submit the completed outline in a Microsoft Word document.

Requirements

Your assignment will be graded according to the following criteria:

  • The outline is complete and on topic.
  • The outline provides solid flow for the speech.
  • The outline is clear and free from spelling and grammar issues.

This course requires the use of SWS writing standards. The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:

  • Outline a speech using a structured flow and proper spelling and grammar.

 

(Message from the Professor)

Thank you for your submission. Unfortunately, I am unable to grade the assignment because it does not correctly address one of the approved topics.

Please keep in mind – as reviewed on the overview video emailed and located in course announcements and on the assignment overview document – the elevator pitch outline should address your professional experiences and background.

Please review the Assignment Overview document in the course shell (assignment links) for the list of approved topics. Also, please review the overview video located in course announcements for a detailed review of the assignment. Please resubmit the assignment on an approved topic, and your grade will be updated.

 

(Message from the Professor)

This assignment was graded a second time. It still does not correctly address the topic. When writing an elevator pitch you will want to list your specific skills for a certain job.  So, instead of writing list of work experience try to be specific and actually list your personal experience. The outline submitted is too broad and seems to give advice about how to succeed at an elevator pitch instead of listing your personal qualification. Please make the necessary changes and your grade will be updated.”
