12 Organizing Your Speech
12-1 Develop the Body
Well- constructed speeches have IMPACT.
First two action steps to organizing your speech:
your general and specific speech goal
a body of information on your topic
Steps when ready to plan body paragraphs :
a) Identifying and arranging
main points

b) Crafting them into a
well-phrased thesis statement
c) Developing each main point with
appropiate suppoting material
(evidence and reasoning)
to move smoothly from one main point to the next
What if the main ideas arent obvious?
1. List ideas you believe relate to your specific goal
2. Eliminate ideas the audience already knows
3. Eliminate ideas that may be too complicated or too broad for audience
4. Check if some ideas can be grouped together under a broader theme
5. From remaining ideas, choose 2-4 points
Preparation Outline: provides draft of main points but not in a complete sentence

Katies Main Points
1. What exactly is Adderall?
2. Increasing number of college students are using Adderall.
3. Abusing Adderall is risky.
Achieve Best Wording
a. Is the relationship between each main point and the speech goal clearly specified?
b. Are the main points parallel in structure?
12-1b Continued...
Shape your main points into clear sentences
1. What exactly is Adderall? --> What exactly is Adderrall, and what is it prescribed for?
- because her fist statement doesn't indicate what purpose Adderall serves as prescription medicine
2. An increase number of American college students are using Adderall? --> Adderall abuse is becoming increasingly popular among American College Students.
3. Abusing Adderall is risky. --> Abusing Adderall as a study aid is dangerous.
Parallel Structure: when main points follow the same structural pattern.
Numbering: first... second... third
Active Verb
I. Format the heading elements correctly.
II. Organize the body into 3 paragraphs
III. Conclude
IV. Proofread
12-1C Select a Main Point Pattern
Different Organizational Patterns
1. Time Order (Sequential Order or Chronological Order): arranges main points in squence or by steps in a process

In order to do a seondary research, here are a couple of things you should know:
How to locate sources
What types of sources you can draw informatoin from?
How to skim and evaluate these information?

Statements that can be verified
You can find them in form of statistics or examples.

3. Topical Order : arranges the main points using some logical relationship among them
main points might generate from general to specific, least to most important, most to least familiar etc.
4. Logical Reasons Order: structures main points according to reason for accepting the thesis as desirable or true
usually used when goal is to persuade
12-1d Write the Thesis Statement
Thesis Statement
: one or two sentence summary that incorportaes your general and specific goals and previews the main points of your speech
"Off-label Adderall use by college students is growing in popularity among college students. To clarify, let's discuss the nature and purpose of Adderall as a prescription drug , its growing popularity as a study aid among college students and problems associated with using Adderall as a study aid."
12-1e Outline the Speech Body
: written framework of the sequential and hierarchal relationships among ideas in the speech.
Three Levels of Hierarchy
1. Main Points
2. Subpoints that support a main point
3. Sub-subpoints
12-1f Develop Main Points
developed with subpoints and supporting material
: statements that elaborate on a main point

might have more than one due to complexity of main point
Supporting Material
: developmental material you gathered through secondary and primary research
are identified by sorting through the research compiled in annotated bibliography and/or research cards to find evidence
then look for relationships between and among ideas
Listener Relevance Link
: piece of information that alerts listeners to why the main point is relevant to them
atleast have one subpoint of Listener Relevance Link in each main point
Since you know something about your topic, you can share your credentials, when doing your speech.
Numerical facts
Use only statistics that are reliable and valid
recent statistics will not mislead your audience
Use statistics comparatively
Statistics can sometime be biased

Detailed explanation of factual statements

Judgement made by an authority in a particular subject area
Experts can help understand the meaning of a fact.
You can elaborate on factual information and expert opinion by using anecdote and narratives, comparisons and contrasts, or quotable explanations and opinions
Comparison highlights similarities while contrast highlights differences.
Comparison and contrast can be both literal and figurative.
Anecdotes are short stories and narratives are account, personal experiences, tale, or lengthier stories.

Well-explained information that can be used in your speech.
too much quotation can cause you to lose your audience's attention

Not acknowledging the source of an imformation is an act of plagarism
11-1b Ethical Use of Audience Data

Adapting to your audience also means creating a speech that all audience members can relate to.

Avoid two potential drawbacks:


Reduce your chances of these drawbacks by identifying and acknowledging the
audience diversity

11-1c Examine the Occasion
Answers to several questions about the
should guide you when selecting your topic and throughout the speech-making process.

1. What is the intended purpose of the speech?
2. What is the expected length?
3. Where will the speech be given?
4. When will the speech be given?
5. What equipment is necessary and available?

11-2a Subjects

those that:
(1) you think are important and
(2) you know something about.
11-2b Brainstorm and Concept Map

concept mapping
11-2c Select a Topic
As you review your topic list, compare each to your audience profile.
The topics that remain should be appropriate for the rhetorical situation.

general goal
of your speech and then to write your
specific goal
statement tailored to the audience and occasion.

2. Make sure the goal statement contains only one central idea.
3. Revise the statement until it clearly articulates the desired audience response.

12-1g Create Transitions
: words, phrases, or sentences that show the relationship between or bridge ideas
Section Transitions
: complete sentence that shows the relationship between or bridges major parts of a speech
typically summarize what has just been said in one main point and preview the one coming up next
Important because...
1. help audience follow the organizational of ideas in the speech
2. help audience members remember information
: short word or phrase transitions that connect pieces of supporting material to the main point or subpoint they address
1. number ideas
2. help focus on a key idea
3. used to introduce an explanation
4. signal lengthy anecdote coming to an end

Just as section transitions serve as the glue that holds your big-picture main points together, signposts connect your subpoints and supporting material together within each main point.
Seeking information from sources with different cultural background can help you see the information from a diffwerent perspective.
Once you have found your information, you should record them along with citations.
How to record the information you plan to use?
- You can do so by compiling annotated bibliography and create research card.
Lists of citations of a relevant sources that you collected during your research.
Each entry of an annotated bibliography consists of a brief summary
Complete citation of each source
How the source is relevant to your topic
Direct quotations that you might use in your speech
Index cards that provides one piece of information that is relevant to your topic
Consist of a a main idea and citation
useful to easily arrange your information
acknowledge the source where you find your information
Aggrandize the credibility of what you say
In your speech you must provide oral footnotes
