5. Define specific actions. In the final step, the speaker must turn the audience’s agreement and commitment into positive action. Tell audience members what they need to do to obtain the described solution and its benefits. B. Making the most of Monroe’s motivated sequence. To make the most of Monroe’s motivated sequence, the steps should be followed in sequence. The sequence closely resembles a problem-solution organizational format, but it digresses from linear logic in several ways. In the attention step, the structure deviates from linearity by noting potential objections and dispelling audience concerns or problems with a solution. The most critical principle in Monroe’s sequence is the identification of the audience’s needs before proposing a solution. The Visualization step also enforces the sequence of motivation to enact change. C. Outlining the persuasive speech Each of the five steps in Monroe’s motivated sequence should be represented by a Roman numeral. Main points and subpoints are represented by capital letters and numbers, respectively. For this assignment , you will attempt to evoke reactions in your audience. This speech is meant to appeal to the audience’s attitudes, beliefs, and values about the issue in question and to sway listeners toward the speaker’s point of view.
