Ashley Hoffmann 14106647 Chapter 9: Organizing Your Speech What are the four steps in selecting your main points? First you should consider your purpose by making sure that every main point you select relates to  the specific purpose of your speech. In addition you also need to take your audience into account  when selecting your main points. You can accomplish this step by asking the questions: which  points will provide your listeners with the most useful information and which ones will prove  most interesting to your audience? Also, you need to select an appropriate number of main  points that will give you the most logical organization of your ideas. Finally you need to organize  the information you plan to use to support that point into two to five key ideas, which will  become your main points. What are the principles for organizing your supporting materials? The principle of subordination is a key to a well-organized speech. This means creating a  hierarchy of points and their supporting materials in your speech. Supporting materials used to  develop a main point (called subpoints) are subordinate to the main point. Another key is  coordination, in which each main point is coordinate with other main points. In addition your

    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.
