Speech #2: Synthesis of Two Sources
The requirements are two-fold: first, you must choose a topic that relates in a significant way to one of the topics listed above, and second, you must make an argument or pursue a point – I do not want a straight report (examples of satisfactory and unsatisfactory thesis sentences are listed on the reverse). i chose food allergy
You will give a seven-minute extemporaneous speech in which you synthesize two sources to draw conclusions. In effect, you will strive to do on a small scale what you’ll do on a larger scale in your researched essay. You may even be able to eventually incorporate parts of this assignment into your researched essay – for that reason, the sources you choose should relate to the topic you’ve tentatively picked. Here are some guidelines and suggestions:
• During your speech, you can use your key-word outline as well as a separate sheet that includes quotes you will use. (It will be necessary to employ quotes from both of your sources.) Note that you will not be reading your speech, and it is unwise to attempt to memorize it. There will be an emphasis on relying on your notes as little as possible.
• Start with an introduction that includes your thesis statement, a “hook” meant to draw in the audience, and a preview of what you’ll cover. Be sure your thesis makes is narrow, specific, and arguable.
• In the body of the speech, support your points by using evidence from the sources. This evidence will include quotes, paraphrases, and summary.
• The role of summary is important to consider. Because your audience will not be familiar with your precise topic or with your sources, you will need to include brief sections of summary.
• Use your thesis statement, topic sentences, and transitions to ensure a clear organization.
• Conclude by restating your thesis, and finish strong by reiterating the importance of your message.
• During the speech, provide documentation in the form of verbal acknowledgment, before and after the quoted or paraphrased section. Signal phrases, such as “according to,” will be necessary to clarify transitions. It is important that, as audience members, we know when material is based on sources, through direct quotation or paraphrase, and when you after expressing your own perspective.
• Include a “Works Cited” entry, both in the full-sentence and key-word outlines.
