Speech Analysis Paper 50 points Objectives: To expose the student to public presentations outside the classroom setting. To exercise the student’s evaluative skills. To exercise academic writing skills. To note the structure and development of a speech. To discern between the different components of a speech. To evaluate the effectiveness of the speech in terms of its purpose. To analyze the effectiveness of the argument in terms of development and support. To suggest improvements that could be made to the speech. To articulate in written form, one’s understanding of speech construction and delivery. Approach: You are to observe a political speech via YouTube or television. You cannot use a debate. The individual speech mus t be at least 20 minutes long. The longer it is, the easier it might be to evaluate; you will have time to really think about what you are hearing. You will write an analysis of the presentation using the criteria we use to critique in-class speeches. Your analysis should include where and when you saw this speech. You will need to back up your claims with public speaking theory discussed in lecture and text. Make sure to cite sources (from text, lecture, and additional research if used) that support your opinion. The guidelines below should assist you. Observe the speech carefully & thoroughly : Take notes on its purpose, thesis, main points, support, and structure. Where is it strong? Where is it weak? How can the speech be improved? You may use the critique sheet provided for our class speeches as partial guidance. Use the following questions to assist you in your analysis. Who is the audience the speaker is addressing? Is it heterogeneous, homogenous? What is important?

    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.
