Hello writer, This is a 5 minute PowerPoint presentation. I would like to talk about Brazil. Starting with general knowledge and some main points of traditional food, cultural festivities and sports demonstrating with images and a possible short video at the end. Please include one page summary paper based on the presentation slides to study for the speech. see below for more information. If you have any questions call me at 801652-7087.

Learning Outcomes: For this assignment, you’ll deliver a five-minute, extemporaneous, informative oral presentation, using a key-word outline (NOT a word-for-word script), to an audience of at least ten adults. You’ll show a PowerPoint presentation along with your speech. Your task is to demonstrate the principles of extemporaneous speaking you’ve been learning about in this course. This assignment offers you an opportunity to
 apply your understanding of the principles of extemporaneous speaking and  practice delivering a professional presentation
About Anxiety: Every semester, some students enroll in this class who experience speech anxiety or panic disorder. If you fall into this category, start working with your instructor ahead of time. With patience and persistence, it IS POSSIBLE to overcome this challenge. If you take some first steps in this class toward overcoming anxiety, you’ll be better off for the rest of your life. The speech counts for a significant number of points out of your grade. Even if you don’t think you’ll do well, turn in your materials, show up for your delivery session, and make an attempt to deliver your speech. You’re likely to earn at last 60% of the points toward Part 3 of this assignment if you attempt to complete your delivery. If you don’t show up, you forfeit all the points for speech delivery. If you don’t complete this assignment, the highest grade you can earn in this class is a C-. Don’t ignore this very important assignment, even if it terrifies you. Your instructor is supporting you. Your instructor wants you to succeed. Your instructor will work with you. Three-Step Assignment: This assignment is divided into three steps: the outline, the PowerPoint, and the final delivery. You’ll get plenty of feedback after you submit the first two steps. You can revise and resubmit Parts 1 & 2 if you wish. You can ask questions at any time. Thus, when you finally stand up and present your ideas orally to the audience, you should be so well prepared and so familiar with your speech that you’ll have a pleasant and rewarding experience. **************************************************************************************************************************
A. How to Prepare:
1. Read Chapters 9 – 11 and the section about Informative Presentations from Chapter 12.
2. View the student examples for the outline, PowerPoint, and speech delivery.
B. Select your topic. The criteria for your topic are (1) expertise, (2) narrow focus, (3) intellectual stimulation, and (4) informative approach. Expertise: Choose a topic you have a lot of knowledge about. Research has shown that credibility (competence in your subject matter) is the most important determinant of whether your speech is successful or not. Few people are invited to speak about a topic they’re not an “expert” on.
Teach the audience something you’ve learned at school or at work or through a hobby. You’ll be more comfortable talking about a topic you’re very familiar with (e.g., how to select a pair of hiking boots that fit well; the effect of sugar on our metabolism; typical causes of earthquakes; tips for creating an artistic scrapbook; guide dogs for the blind) than a topic you know little about. You’ll be able to make your speech interesting if you have prior experience with the topic; you can liven it up by including brief personal experiences. Narrow focus: Choose a very specific focus for your speech. Avoid broad issues such as political topics, gun control, abortion, and the like. Try writing one preliminary draft of an outline; then discard all your

main points except ONE. Start over, using the one main point you’ve selected as the topic of your speech. Your audience can understand and enjoy the speech much more if you narrow your topic. This will allow you ample time to make each point “come alive” for your audience by integrating a variety of statistics, quotes, examples, and personal stories.

Intellectual stimulation: Avoid frivolous topics such as “the value of procrastinating,” “101 uses for duct tape,” or “how to make a peanut butter sandwich.” Teach something of informative value for your audience. The audience should leave your speech thinking, “I’m really glad I learned about that!” Don’t waste the time of your classmates. Since time is money, you’re figuratively stealing when you waste another person’s time. You may choose a topic the audience already has some knowledge about (e.g. the value of exercise). If you do so, however, teach something new about the topic. It isn’t enough to say generic statements such as “exercise is good for you.” To add depth to this topic, you might explain step-by-step the physiological process through which exercise affects our heart. Display a diagram and explain a few basic physiological terms. Informative: Aim for a “teaching” approach rather than a “preaching” approach. Master principles of informative speaking before you venture forth into the arena of persuasion. Effective persuasion is difficult; save your persuasive speech until you take COMM 1020 – Public Speaking. C. Write a specific purpose statement. After you’ve selected your topic, consider your audience. What specific knowledge about your topic would you like them to walk away with? Express this as a purpose statement that begins with the words: “My audience will ….” This goal is for planning purposes only. You won’t say this out loud to your audience. Examples: My audience will realize they can start saving for tax-free retirement now by opening a Roth IRA. My audience will understand how they can benefit their children by reading out loud to them.

D. Write a thesis statement. Write a sentence that clearly summarizes this one key idea. Unlike in written compositions, the thesis of a speech should not be a complex sentence. Keep it simple, focused, and easy to understand. You’ll say this sentence out loud in your introduction so your audience will know from the start what your speech is about. Examples:
You can start saving for retirement today by opening a Roth IRA. You can give your child a great gift by reading out loud.

E. Select two or three main points. Write out these points as complete sentences in your outline. The points must be logically related to each other. Examples:
After you put money into a Roth IRA, you won’t have to pay taxes on it again. In an emergency, you can withdraw your Roth contributions without penalty.

F. Develop your supporting material. For each main point, locate at least three specific items that provide strong verbal support for that point. Refer to Table 10-1 in your text. Use a variety of types of support (definition; example; story; statistics; comparisons; quotations). Keep good records of the sources of your information. Help your audience link this information to its source by naming your references (at least three authoritative references) out loud in your speech, immediately before you tell us the information you obtained from that source.

In addition to material from at least three authoritative references, include a mini-story, example, or advice, in which you tell us about your own experience with this topic. This should be a brief, but lively narrative. Your audience will connect to it! You’ll be more credible if you share your own expertise. G. Choose your pattern of organization. Select one of the informative patterns of organization described in your text (chronological; spatial; topical; or cause-effect). In some cases, you might be able to use a problem-solution pattern, as long as you are describing, not persuading. H. Arrange all the pieces into a key-word outline. Follow the format of the sample student outline. First, develop the body of your speech. Then write an introduction and conclusion. Insert transitions between your main points. Key-word outline: This outline will become your speaking notes. Except for your thesis and your main points, avoid writing complete sentences in your speaking notes. If you used complete sentences, you’d be tempted to read your sentences. Reading from your outline is not the same as speaking dynamically to an audience. If you read, you lose eye contact with your audience, and your voice lacks natural
Background Information: Above your outline, identify your specific goal; intended audience; pattern of organization; your experience with the topic; and the number of references you will cite out loud (at least three are required).
Introduction: The introduction should be short … less than 5% of your total speaking time. Start your speech introduction with a “hook” (AKA “attention-getter”). Next, clearly state your thesis. Third, preview your main points. This helps the audience understand the structure and purpose of your speech. Your preview will be clearer if you enumerate each of your main points. Enumeration helps the listeners understand what they should listen for. Here’s an example: “First, I’ll explain what keratoconus is. Then, I’ll tell you how to prevent it.” Chapter 9 includes additional examples. Body: Write each main point as a sentence. Under each main point, arrange the details in outline format, showing key words only. Refer to the student example.
Transitions: Insert transitions between your main points to help your audience follow your line of development. Transitions are sentences that help us segue from one main point to the next (e.g., “Now that I’ve explained what keratoconus is, I’d like to tell you how to prevent it.”)

Conclusion: The conclusion should be short … less than 5% of your total speaking time. Your conclusion should echo your thesis and main points (using different wording). This helps reinforce the key idea you want your audience to remember. Then add a memorable statement that brings your speech to a clear end. Refer to examples in Chapter 9. Beware …. don’t add any new information in your conclusion. All new information should be stated within the body of the speech. Works Cited: Include your complete Works Cited list at the bottom of the outline. You must include at least three respectable references (not counting yourself — you are not a reference). References contribute to your credibility as a speaker. Use a recognized format such as MLA or APA. I. Submit your draft outline to your instructor for feedback and points. After you receive feedback on your draft outline, rework and revise your outline. Then practice, practice, practice for your delivery session. Convert your word-processed key-word outline to very large font with lots of empty space on the page. Use this version as your speaking notes.

(Use this outline as your speaking notes when you deliver your speech.)
You must cite at least one expert reference out loud as part of the support for EACH main point,
for a total of at least three authoritative references.

Speech Title: _____________________________

I. Hook (attention-getter): Cite an incident, tell a story, or use an example that will interest the audience in your topic.
