Remember this IS an important part of your speech. It is worth 5% of your grade, but this is not suppose to take up a lot of time or take that much effort. The outline should not take that much time because you should already have your resources. Your outline should take less than 45 minutes. An outline is a skeleton of a speech. There should NOT be paragraphs, it should be a mere handful of sentences.

Remember what it is that I am grading you on, I am not grading your typing and formatting abilities. I am not really grading your ability to even form grammatically correct sentences. What I am grading you on is your ability to:

1. organize your information
2. adhere to the structure, 
3. include reliable sources, 
4. form a thesis statement
5. Being concise 

Reference sections
I am looking for at least 3 key pieces of information in your reference sections in your outline and at least 2 in your speeches:

In outline
1. Author Name
2. Year of publication
3. Title 

For example: 
Smith, J. (2012). The life of Jane Smith.

In speeches:

1. Author name
2. Year of publication

For example:
According to Smith 2012...

Here are some sample speeches. These are various types of speeches, but you should keep in mind that your most pressing goal is to create an informative speech by November 10th. 
This "after dinner speech" or "speech to entertain" we watched in class. There are some important lessons we learned from this video about how to give a speech, structure and what is and what is not an informative speech.
Tell me what is good and bad about this "Wedding Crashing" speech. What are his references? 

Try not to tear up!
This comment from youtube makes a good point and gives context:
It seems that many people seem to have the wrong idea of this video, so before you comment, please understand: This is not Hitler. This is Charlie Chaplin. The clips of the video above that show a man who resembles Hitler are from a film called The Great Dictator, in which Chaplin plays a character who, through a series of circumstances, was mistaken for a dictator based on Hitler. When asked to give a speech as the new ruler, being a good man, he instead gave the speech you are hearing now.

Here is a writing resource that I would like you to know about. There is a lot of information that everyone (EVERYONE) can use. Even if you know how to write well already, this is still a helpful resource.

Here are videos for the next class. These videos are examples of everyday people doing dramatic readings and some other stuff. You DO NOT need to watch every second of every video. Just look at some as examples and see how they do it. Find your own examples of good and bad ones and we may discuss and/or watch them in class.
