1 a 47

  1. 1. Class 47 EWRT 1A
  2. 2. Agenda Review: Monroe’s Motivated Sequenc The Attention Step The Need Step The Satisfaction Step New: The Visualization Step
  3. 3. The Attention Step • In the attention step, speakers call attention to the situation. King, speaking from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, calls attention to Lincoln’s signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, the situation of the Negro today (“One hundred years later, the Negro still is not free.”), and the fact that the words of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence granting all people the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have not been fulfilled.
  4. 4. The Need Step • For the need step, speakers describe the difficulty, trouble, distress, crisis, emergency, or urgency. King says, “Instead of honoring this sacred obligation [what the Constitution and Declaration of Independence promise], America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check that has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’” And why have they come to Washington, D.C.? — to “remind America of the fierce urgency of now.”
  5. 5. The Satisfaction Step • In the satisfaction step, speakers tell listeners how to satisfy the need they establish. King says, “We must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.” To march ahead, he said, “We can never be satisfied.” Then he tells listeners to go back home knowing their situation can and will be changed.
  6. 6. The Visualization Step • For visualization, speakers offer listeners a vision of what life can be once their solution (offered in the satisfaction step) is adopted. This is where King offers listeners his dream: “I have a dream” offered along with five different descriptions of what life can and will be like in Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, in communities, and around the world.
  7. 7. HOMEWORK • Post #51: Speech writing: The Visualization Step: Refine and develop the "Visualization step" in your speech. Speakers offer listeners a vision of what life can be once their solution (offered in the satisfaction step) is adopted. (The Promise) • Review and revise the other steps in your speech. Speeches begin Wednesday, week 11, class 50. Everyone should be prepared to go first.
