Assignment 3: Persuasive and Informative Speech

 

By Tuesday, February 26, 2013, write a 2–3-page paper that responds to the following topics. Support your response with relevant citations, using proper APA format, both from the course materials, and other resources.

 

  1. Search the Web for examples of informative and persuasive speeches. You’ll find some excellent examples on this site: http://www.americanrhetoric.com. Locate one informative and one persuasive speech. Assess how well the speeches you’ve chosen meet or fail to meet the criteria listed in Chapter 1 of your text (under “The Speaker’s Responsibilities”).
  2. What are the differences between informative and persuasive speeches? Can an informative speech be persuasive? Can a persuasive speech be informative? Why or why not?Support your rationale with appropriate examples from the text and other supported readings.
  3. Discuss a modern example of a speech style that was not discussed in the lecture. Don’t think just in terms of public speaking. Consider such issues as how changes in technology have influenced the way we communicate. Do you think these new styles will be long-lived, or do you consider them fads? Support your rationale with appropriate examples from the text and other supported readings.

 

Post your paper to the W1: Assignment 3 Dropbox.
