I’m trying to study for my Communications course and I need some help to understand this question.
Oftentimes, one must persuade an audience to act. This requires the presenter to speak to the history of the presentation topic, as well as consider how best to persuade their audience to take the action suggested. If you find it helpful, you may wish to create an outline to help you prepare for your presentation.
Select a topic from the following list:
- An issue in your community or on a national scale that requires a resolution, such as a local policy or law you feel should be created or changed
- An event or action plan for your local community or workplace, such as hosting an art fair, introducing a recycling program, or cleaning up a local park
- Another topic as approved by your instructor
Create an outline for your speech and submit it as a classroom assignment. The outline can be created as a document or as a PowerPoint presentation. If you choose PowerPoint, submit the file as a classroom assignment and also incorporate the slides into the video presentation.
