Analysis of Informative VS Persuasive.
Description The two main types of speeches we will be focusing on in this course are informative and persuasive speeches. Each speech type serves a separate purpose and goal. Search the web for examples of informative and persuasive speeches. You will find some excellent examples on this site: http://www.americanrhetoric.com. Locate and view one informative and one persuasive speech. In a 2–3-page paper, discuss the difference between informative and persuasive speeches. Can an informative speech be persuasive? Can a persuasive speech be informative? Why or why not? Assess the two speeches you viewed. Identify the two videos you viewed and briefly (in 2–3 sentences) describe the main focus of the speeches. Then discuss how well the speeches you viewed meet or fail to meet the criteria listed below. Provide examples to support your discussion. Each speech aligns with the purpose of its specific genre, the speaker’s end goal, and the final message the speaker wants to impart to the audience. Each speech manages to convince the audience of a certain viewpoint. Appropriate speech techniques are used that highlight each specific genre. Speech content is adequately tailored for audience considerations in terms of content, length, and delivery. Each speech is organized cohesively with a good introduction, body, and conclusion.
