SPEECH #1 Informative-Demonstration Worth 75 points Purpose This speech shows the audience how to do something or how something works. The tip- off to the speech of demonstration is the phrase “how-to”. Aim at either an understanding or application, introducing listeners to a process or instructing them so that they can perform the process themselves. If your goal is understanding, you can usually demonstrate more complex processes in a short speech than if your goal is application. Most of these speeches follow the sequential design (meaning this moves the listeners through time and thus the speaker presents the steps in a process). For the sequential process, you begin by determining the necessary steps in the process and then decide the order in which they must take place. In a short presentation, you should have no more than 5 steps as main points. If you have more, try to cluster some into subpoints. Requirements
