Question Description

Your midterm exam is meant to help you prepare for your persuasive speech, which is your final project. For your midterm exam you need to submit an outline and a list with your four sources for your persuasive speech in week 8.

By now you should have narrowed down your persuasive speech topic. This week we’ll put together your outline for that speech. You’ll also need to include four sources you’d like to use. You do not have to use those sources in your final speech, but you will have a head start on your research.

For the outline use the template below. The chapter readings in our textbook this week will help in completing the outline template appropriately as well.

For the outline, briefly give ideas as to what you’d present for each part. For instance, if you were to use the topic about cutting back on sugar you can start with an attention getter about the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Then, for the main point you can talk about health and provide supporting details about health. The second main point could be about weight or finding energy from other foods, etc. Remember each point can be brief. Just give an idea of what you think you’d mention. You don’t have to give any research or material like that, just ideas for each point.

Then after your outline copy and paste four sources you may end up using. Paste them like you would in a reference page and I’ll be able to look at the sources for review. Then give a brief description of what those sources cover to help show that you reviewed them and that they will work for your speech.

Should all interns be paid during their internships or not?
Description of the controversial topic chosen:
We all understand what is meant by internships. It is a limited period of time given out by an organization
to a university or a college student where they can work and gain experience. Most internships do not pay
anything and some of them pay. Most students want to be paid and no one wants to work for free. It is
important to understand whether it is better for interns to be paid or not.
The viewpoint I will champion for:
All interns should be paid during their internships.
The opposing viewpoint:
All interns should not be paid during their internships programs.
Attention Getter:
A year ago, I visited Kenya, a country in East Africa on a tour which had been sponsored by a company I
was working for at the time on a part-time basis as an intern. We had gone to tour a branch that the
company had opened in Kenya. There, I encountered four students who were on an internship and they
were not paid even a single cent. These students came from a very poor background. After talking to them,
I realized that not paying them made them very desperate and unmotivated to work. One of them told me
that he was to stop working there because he did not money to buy food and other personal effects. This is
the reason why today I am advocating for the main reasons as to why all interns should be paid during their
How I will connect with my audience:
The audience for my speech is students (interns) and corporate members (employers) or people who own
companies. I...
