Communication is used to inform, to persuade and to analyze. In this assignment, you will write a
speech that provides your audience information about a topic.
There are two (2) parts to be submitted in this assignment. Your presentation should be submitted
A Power Point presentation file that is like a visual outline, with bullet points and
maybe images. This is what you would show your audience.
A Word document containing the wording of the speech. This is what you would say
to your audience while you are showing them the Power Point presentation.
You may add audio to your PowerPoint if you wish, but the script (Word doc) will still be required.
This allows us to process all assignments in Turnitin.
Your speech should be between1000 – 1250 words. It’s important to stay within that range. Good
writers learn to adapt to size requirements of the writing they are asked to do. You can use the word
count of both files to calculate the total word count.
Your speech should include an introduction which identifies your main point, a body in which
you provide support for your main point, and a conclusion that wraps up your presentation
and says something about the significance of what you’ve presented, just as you would do in
a paper. The templates attached here give you good ideas of how the presentation and the speech
script should look.
Be sure to look at the grading rubric for the assignment. There are specific limits on the amount of
text on the slides. This is to help ensure that the font size stays big enough to be easily read. You
also need to provide a reference list as the last slide in your Power Point.
