In this assignment you will research, prepare, rehearse, and record and upload (using the canvas media editor) an advocacy speech.
Your speech should adhere to the advocacy speaking guidelines discussed in this module . Pay particular attention to key organizational elements in the introduction, body, and conclusion. You must have a clear problem and legislative solution. Utilize clear source citations prior to any quoted material. Quote a minimum of four credible sources. Additionally, you should follow the best practices standards described on the how to video tape a speech in canvas page How to Record and Submit a Media Recording. The speech should be between 4 and 5 minutes long.
Choose a topic from the advocacy speech topics page Advocacy Speech Topics, or use a topic you have approved . Find at least four credible quotations to support your main points.
Make sure you make note of the author of the citation, their credentials, and the date. Following the outline described in the Advocacy Speech Structure, construct a 4-5 minute speech. Using a single note card (with your outline and quoted sources on it), rehearse the speech at least three times standing.
Record and submit the speech using the canvas media editor. Remember to stand, maintain consistent eye contact, speak loudly, and gesture. BTW-always give canvas some time to save-you may hit the save key and nothing will happen.
