  • 1. Evidence By Adriene Ghiasian
  • 2. Terms to Know
    • Source: One, such as a person or document, that supplies information.
    • Falsified: To make up evidence.
    • Testimonial: A statement in support of a particular truth, fact, or claim.
    • Eyewitness: A person who can bear witness to the fact.
    • Audience: The spectator or listeners for a speech.
    • Circumstantial: Incidental, no primary significance.
  • 3. What is Evidence?
    • Evidence is referring to specific instances, testimony and proof that will support the claim that you are making.
    • Evidence will help to establish your credibility and will help sway your audience to your cause.
  • 4. Why Does Evidence Matter?
    • Evidence matters because without it you have no credibility.
    • Evidence is practically the staple of all arguments and speeches.
  • 5. Types of Evidence
    • There are three main types of evidence
    • -Statistical Evidence
    • -Testimony Evidence
    • -Legal Precedent Evidence
  • 6. Statistical Evidence
    • To report on a specific instance
    • This type of evidence is to help to communicate a vast number of instances related to your topic without having to cite in detail each and everyone.
    • It is also a way to help describe the facts to your audience.
  • 7. Testimony Evidence
    • Testimony evidence is basically when you have a professional in a field speak in favor of your cause or topic.
    • Or if you quote them in giving your topic precedence
  • 8. Legal Precedent Evidence
    • This is important to help establish winning your case.
    • Legal precedents in which other proven cases can aid you if one court makes a ruling that would be in your favor to present.
    • Such as for a similar situation or cause.
  • 9. Tests of Evidence
    • This will help make your evidence strong
    • In order to do that you need to make sure you comply with the following:
    • -Have you falsified any of your evidence?
    • (can it prove you lied?)
    • -Does it come from a reliable source?
    • (I.E, from a doctor of expert in their field?)
    • -Is it not enough?
    • (will it still leave your audience with questions?)
  • 10. Using Evidence
    • When presenting any evidence for any cause it is important to remember :
    • -Without conclusive proof your chances of proving your point beyond any reason of a doubt is nearly impossible.
    • -Remember weak evidence means a weak claim.
    • -The more specific you are the less the audience will question your proof.
    • -Most importantly, always check your sources!
