Outline Format There is a strong connection between the outline you construct and the speech you present. Your speech will only be as good as your outline. Omission of necessary parts, improper subordination of ideas, poor indentation, etc., are common errors that can impede your practice and presentation of your speech. Your outlines for this course should strictly follow this sample outline (including the labels for each section) and use the principles of good outlining as discussed in class and developed in your text. Topic : General Purpose : To ___________________________ Specific Purpose : ( Who should do what how, when or where.) Thematic Statement : (This should be a single, concise sentence.) INTRODUCTION (Note that the introduction must be memorized.) Attention-getting material : (When you present, this is your first few sentences. It should make your audience want to hear more.) Motivate to listen : (Explain why your message should be important or interesting to your audience. What’s in it for them?) Establish credibility : (Refer to the research you’ve done and/or your experience.)
