For this assignment you will attend a live lecture or review
an online speech recording. You will then write a 2-3 page paper (12-point
font, double spaced) analyzing the speech and the speaker’s delivery.
In the paper you must:
Clearly identify the live speech attended (or online version
observed).
State the speaker’s goal of the presentation.
Identify the primary Message.
Analyze the speaker’s credibility.
Discuss whether the objectives were met through the
presentation.
Provide context for the speech – identify and analyze when
and where the speech was given.
Include key audience information including, but not limited
to demographics, size, and potential additional audiences (e.g. recorded for
the internet)
In addition, you should clearly identify and analyze the
following key components:
Opening – was there an attention getter?
Body – was the presentation organized? Easy to follow? Kept
your attention?
Speech Conclusion – did you find it effective? Did speaker
provide a “wrap up?”
Also, take time to identify and analyze key delivery skills
and techniques used by the presenter as appropriate. These could include but
are not limited to:
Enthusiasm and Connection to the audience
Humor
Visual Aids
Use of Stage Area
Use of Gestures and Eye Contact
Vocal Variety
Conclude your paper by sharing
How did the speech make you feel?
Were you convinced?
Would you want to listen to this speaker again?
Were there any original ideas or techniques?
Finally, be sure to include on a separate page a
bibliography written in APA format with any sources you used to complete the
assignment (hint: if your speech was
found online, cite the web page, if you refer to a concept you found in our
text, use that as a reference!). Deposit the paper in the appropriate drop box
by Week 7.
Suggestions for online speeches to analyze: any of these speeches can be used at the bottom.
