Thepreparation outlineis a detailed outline developed during the planning of the speech-building process. The purpose of the preparation outline is to organize and to ensure that all important information is addressed. The preparation outline is not designed to be read aloud when delivering the presentation but should be used as an aid in rehearsal.The preparation outline should follow the standard full- sentence outline format and include the topic, general purpose, specific purpose, and central idea of the oral presentation. In addition, the introduction, conclusion, and all transitions and internal previews/summaries should be written-out in narrative formatSPEAKING OUTLINEThe speaking outline follows the same general guidelines as the preparation outline in terms of patterns of indentation; however, the speaking outline lets the speaker know exactly where they are at any given point in the speech. In a speaking outline, the speech should not be written out in full-sentence format; rather, the outline should include key topics, words, and phrases; major points and sub-points; transitions; and delivery cues (e.g., what to emphasize, when to pause, etc.). The speaking outline most closely resembles the speaker's notesbut in outline format. When developing the speaking outline, use a short, bullet-style format that keeps the main points in order. Speaker's notescan be included with the outline but should be written legibly, highlighted, or typed in a large font so that the notes can be seen clearly and quickly at a glance. One easy way to manage notes is by using numbered index cards or note cards. Number the note cards in case they are dropped or they fall out of order.DEVELOPING THE PREPARATION OUTLINEPartsBegin the preparation outline by listing the topic, general purpose, specific purpose, and central idea of the oral presentation. In addition to these items, the outline has three parts: introduction, body, and conclusion. Introduction
Write the introduction in full-sentence, narrative format. It is not labeled with a Roman numeral or an Arabic number. It should be one paragraph in length and include the four functions of an introduction: •Gain the attention and interest of the audience. •Introduce the topic clearly or creatively. •Reveal the central idea or thesis of the presentation. •Forecast the main points of the presentationDEVELOPING THE PREPARATION OUTLINEBody: When developing the body of an oral presentation, make sure it includes the content from the references to support each main point and the transitions between each.
