Outlining a Speech

In the past two weeks, you analyzed two different TED speakers, providing a section-by-section breakdown of their performance. This week, you will select another TED video to analyze, with a specific focus on their organizational process Visit and watch several TED speakers. Note that you can sort by topic, speaker, and a host of other criteria. You can watch any TED talk you wish—except for the one you watched for the Week 2 or Week 3 assignment. Also, make sure the TED talk has someone delivering a speech face-to-face, meaning you cannot outline a speech where it’s just a voice over (just voice presenting through PowerPoint or photos). If you’re looking a more concentrated list, you might also wish to visit this link, which highlights the 25 most popular TED talks of all time.

Building upon this week’s lectures and reading, you will outline a talk given by someone else. As you do, think carefully and critically as an audience member.

Please see the attached outline template here. Download, complete it in Microsoft Word, and then upload the completed document to the assignment folder.
