Persuasive Speech: Each student will give a 5- to 6-minute persuasive speech using Monroe’s Motivated Sequence Pattern. This 125 point assignment includes the following: (1) the oral presentation (100 points) and (2) the typed planning document which includes the outline and works cited page in MLA format (25 points). The overall goal is that students prepare and present a persuasive speech; therefore, no portion of this assignment can be omitted. Failure to complete all of the assignment will result in a zero for the entire assignment. In other words, no partial credit is given for speeches. This is not a sales presentation it is persuasive in attempting to affect the audience behavior.
