Just a note reminding you to send me an online rough draft of your first informative speech outline, using your choice of topics I have approved, before the scheduled class. Be sure to follow the format I wrote on the board and gave examples of in previous posts of outline samples. Please submit it, and all future outlines, as a Word.doc attachment, NO OTHER FORMAT.

At the top of the sheet should be the labels “Name”, “Topic”, “Organizational Pattern” (or “Organizational Structure”), “General Purpose”, “Specific Purpose”, “Thesis” (or “Central Idea”). Also, please label the Introduction, Body, and Conclusion of your speech outline. You do not need a list of references for the first speech, but feel free to use one if you do outside research.

If you have other questions or concerns, drop me a note! Best wishes.
