Topic Proposal: Anecdote speech
<
<

<
<
The anecdote speech is a 4-6 minute speech where you will entertain your audience by telling a personal story. This speech should be about 2 main experiences/turning points that changed your life’s direction (or one turning point divided into 2 parts). These 2 points will make up the 2 main points of your speech.

<
<
Check the course schedule for the due date. This assignment is worth 10 points.
<
<

<
<
Remember that there is a sample topic proposal you can check out on Canvas.
<
<

<
<
Provide the following information, and label each of the parts:
<
<
Topic selected and narrowed
<
General purpose
<
Specific purpose
<
2 main ideas
<
Method of organization
<

<
<

<
<
Some guidance, since this assignment is very early in the semester:
<
<
General purpose:
<
To entertain, inform, or persuade? Choose only one of these, since you can only have one general Since this is a storytelling speech, choose “to entertain”.
<

<
<
Specific purpose (one sentence):
<
What you want the audience to get out of your speech—how can THEY benefit? Think about the life lessons you learned from your stories in your main points. That would be what the audience can get from it, too. Make this about the audience, not yourself.
<
An example:
<
YES: Always remember that family is important and we all need to cherish ours every day.
<
NO: I learned that my family is important and I should cherish them.
<
NO: The audience can get to know me better. (This is still self-focused—you have still said nothing about how they benefit)
<

<
<
(FYI, the specific purpose will be the same as the significance statement once you start on the outline—the purpose is to tell the audience what they can get out of the speech)
<
<

<
<
2 main ideas:
<
What story/experience do you want to focus on in each main point? Make sure the main idea/main point is about telling the story/experience itself and what happened. Don’t label the “main point” as the life lessons you learned from it—since most of the main point should be telling the story of what happened, that should be how it is labeled. The “life lessons you learned” is only a small part at the end of that main point.
<
Here is an example:
<
YES: Main point 1: My mother going through breast cancer when I was 10 years old at the same time that my brother had open-heart surgery. My family went through a lot at that time, and we relied on each other for support.
<
NO: Main point 1: I need to lean on my family for support and remember to help them out when they need it as well. (This is more of a life-lesson than a main point—I sill don’t know what you will be talking about here)
<

<
<
Method of organization for main ideas:
<
Organizational method choices are chronological/spatial/topical/compare contrast/cause effect/problem solution. (See the text for more info)
<
Choose only one of these.
<
For this speech, most speeches end up as topical (miscellaneous organization), and some as chronological or cause/effect…I have never in all my days seen a spatial speech J
<
The organizational method is how you organize the main points in relation to each other, not the subpoints within the main points. How are the two main points related to each other?
<
Is main point one cause and main point two effect (cause/effect)?
<
Is main point one about camp when you were twelve and main point two about going back as a camp counselor (chronological, or perhaps even compare/contrast)?
<
Is main point one about how your sister threw up on you in the car on a family road trip J and main point two about your internship at the Orange County Register (topical, since they’re not really related to each other)?
<

<
<
Make sure you label each of these parts so I know which of your responses is which. Do not merely write one big paragraph and expect me to be able to pick out which of the sentences is your specific purpose, for example.
<
<

<
<
Two very important things before you begin:
<
<

<
<
(1) You should not choose to talk about physical or sexual abuse (child abuse) in the anecdote speech. This topic tends to be too triggering for folks.
<
<
If you are talking about something that might need a content warning, feel free to let us know at the beginning of your speech (it’s not part of the length of the speech), or you can type it in as a comment below your speech URL submission.
<

<
<
(2) Turning in this assignment allows you to have your topic approved by me. I doubt I will need to ask anyone to change their anecdote topics, they are always great…however, topic approval will be very important for the next speeches so you start your research with a solid, workable topic for those more complex assignments
