Public Speaking CHAPTER 8 Developing Supporting Material Gather Supporting Material Now that you know a little about your audience, you can gather supporting material with them in mind. Ask yourself the following questions: What information will clarify the topic for your audience? What details will they find interesting? How can you relate the topic to yourself or the audience with your supporting material? What sources will the audience find credible? Types of Supporting Materials Examples Narratives Testimony Facts Statistics Illustrate Your Topic with Examples Brief examples offer a single illustration of a point, such as a story from your own personal experience that is a sentence or two in length. Extended examples offer multifaceted illustrations of an idea, item, or event, such as a longitudinal description of the issue. Hypothetical examples provide a visualization of “what if” scenarios.
