SPEECH #2 DEMONSTRATION/ PROCESS ANALYSIS Perhaps one of the most common informative speeches is the demonstration of a process. We will define a demonstration as any speech in which the speaker attempts to show the audience how to do something, how to make something, or how something works. To make effective demonstrations, a speaker needs the following: the audience to accept his or her personal expertise, a clear chronological organizational pattern, and the ability to use the materials of the demonstration. The speaker must demonstrate and explain; the speaker must identify the steps in the process and present them systematically. ASSIGNMENT Prepare a five-to-seven minute speech in which you show how something is made, how something is done, or how something works. Evaluation will focus on quality of the topic; selection, construction, use of visual aids, and skill in organization and presentation.
