Introduction to Public Speaking – Week 4 Assignment
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 TED.com 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. Try to identify clear introductory elements (attention-getter, thesis, credibility statement, preview, etc.), clear main points, transitions, and other devices of speech organization.
Please see the attached outline template here. Download, complete it in Microsoft Word, and then upload the completed document to the assignment folder.
Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers.
Three Speech Introductions
As we move closer and closer towards the major speech assignments in this course, it is time to start thinking about how you can learn from all that you have read, observed, and learned this semester. In this week’s discussion board you will start thinking about the start of your speeches. Your task this week is to film yourself giving THREE separate introductions for your upcoming speech. By now, you should have begun planning your speech. Remember that it is those first words out of your mouth that really get your audience engaged.
In your initial post, Film yourself in three separate clips (not one giant clip) giving a potential intro for that speech. Note that all intros will be on the same topic and for the same speech. Each intro should be decidedly different from the others; use different tactics in each. After getting our attention, please be sure to clearly state your thesis and give a preview of the points you will share in your speech at the end of each clip.
Additionally, make sure to write a short statement in your post explaining which of your three introductions you think is the best and why?
In your follow up posts, you will view all three videos of at least two other classmates (viewing a minimum of 6 videos total). You will then comment on the benefits and drawbacks of each, ultimately telling them which is your favorite and why, along with any further tips for enhancements.

Week 4 Discussion
Here are my videos I have posted. I will like my first one the best I believe. Even though I used a lot of humor in the 3rd video I think my audience would be interested to know how the Military utilizes, trains, and benefits from working dogs compared to the civilian world.
