TV SHOW ANALYSIS ASSIGNMENT Prepare this speech according to the directions and suggestions below. This speech will be 5-7 minutes long and is worth 150 points. Adherence to the 5-7 minute timeframe of the speech will be strictly kept. I will assign you to a day to present your speech within the speech block. If you are not ready or are not in class on that particular day , you will forfeit your points . No make-ups will be made. This assignment is in two parts. First, you will make your outline and bring it in for the last class before the speech block. On this day, we will conduct a peer edit. I will also go around and correct your outline, too. This is for an easy 50 points. It is pass or fail. You receive the points just for showing up, bringing your outline to be edited by your peer and myself, and to edit someone else’s paper, as well. After receiving feedback on your outline, you are then to go home and re-do your outline and make all the corrections. Staple the original outline to the final outline in order to receive your grade. Both outlines must be stapled together. There will be one letter grade deduction if one outline is missing. The first outline draft is due March 4 or 10; the final outline and speech block will be due March 6 or 12. Note: If you do not bring a print-out of your corrected outline stapled to your final outline, you will also forfeit the chance to present your speech.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
