Informative speech outline v3 006


Published on

Anyone in a Speech course, here's a copy of an A+ speech. It is in outline form, yes. The instructor, Matt Taylor (as you can see), did not allow "written" speeches. We had to memorize the outline of our speeches - an only the outline. We were not allowed index cards or any aids whatsoever that would help us "recite" our speeches. If you're attending Fullerton College, I recommend this guy as an instructor. He's tough but it's worth it. BTW - he's a self-described "flaming liberal" and, as you see by this speech, I'm not ... yet, I still think he is a great professor. Anyway, I used a lot of rhetoric in this speech. I use a lot of rhetoric in everything. I can't help it. I can't stay focused if speeches or papers are dry.

  1. 1. Louis WischnewskySpeech 100TaylorNovember 9, 2010 Speech # 4: Informal The Tea PartyI. Introduction A. Story – Describe the shopping cart story. B. According to a CBS News / New York Time poll, 18% of voters identify themselves with the Tea Party. 1. Bob Schieffer says thats a force to be reckoned with. (SOURCE: “Schieffer ...”) 2. Alaska, Delaware, Florida: across the United States, people are unjamming shopping carts. 3. The lesson is that whether you like it or not, the shopping carts we know as government are getting rearranged. C. In this speech Im going to inform you about the Tea Party Movement. D. Im going to do this by discussing three different aspects of the movement: 1. First, Im going to compare the modern Tea Party movement to the original Boston Tea Party. 2. Second, Im going to address some of the complaints about the tea party movement. 3. And third, well look at the faces of the modern tea party movement.II. Main Point One – There are some similarities and misconceptions. (SOURCE: Labaree) A. The original Boston Tea Party was the culmination of years of protests. B. Neither movement has been about taxes, both have been about the role of government.
  2. 2. C. There are different sects of tea parties. 1. The different sects of the original tea party movement a. The Philadelphia Tea Party b. The New York Tea Party c. The Boston Tea Party. 2. The modern Tea Party movement also has different sects. a. The Tea Party Express b. The Tea Party Patriots c. 3. Each sect has its individual beliefs but as a whole, just like the original movement, all the different groups feel government has become too intrusive. D. Tea Party is moved by businesspeople, not members of the establishment wearing camouflage. 1. I will address this in more detail in a few minutes. 2. The idea of the overall movement is to bring fresh action to government. a. The movement prefers to do this by bringing fresh people into politics. b. The movement wants to accomplish action toward their ideals, not promises of action. c. Thus, sometimes the movement does embrace members of the establishment; thats an exception, not a rule.III. Main Point Two – A Rolling Stone article highlights some complaints about the Tea Party. (SOURCE: Taibbi) A. Tea Party is not multiracial.
  3. 3. 1. 3% of Tea Party movement are minorities. 2. Tea Party argues that multiracial consistency does not determine the validity of an ideology. 3. The Million Man March is an example of racial consistency not determining the validity of an ideology. B. Tea Party members carry guns. 1. Tea Party argues that the New Black Panthers carry assault weapons when they make public appearances. 2. They also argue that, for them, guns are just like the signs and placards other groups carry when they protest; just part of the assembly. C. Tea Party protests entitlements but wont give up the perks it receives. 1. Tea Party members feel this is an oversimplification of the issue. 2. True, taking the entitlements is part of a bandwagon reaction. 3. Taking those entitlements, though, is a matter of survival in the eyes of the Tea Partiers. D. Tea Party is a bunch of back-woods idiots. 1. Not according to that CBS News / New York times poll. 2. A plurality of Tea Partiers are well-educated; they have college degrees.IV. Main Point Three – Faces of the Tea Party Movement A. Whether John Hancock, Ben Franklin, Joe Miller or Carl Paladino, the tea party movement is made up of businesspeople that normally simply vote. B. The Tea Party consists of people need to know social, financial, and governmental trends. 1. Use story of John Hancock as an example of a businessman that had to know trends and sentiments months in advance.
  4. 4. 2. Joe Miller in Alaska has to know in advance how new laws and regulations are going to affect his clients and potential clients. 3. Carl Paladino in New York has to know social and financial trends to know what rent to charge his customers. 4. Sarah Palin is not considered part of the establishment because she is so new to politics. C. The Tea Party consists of well-to-do, well-educated independents; 41% are independents. (SOURCE: Montopoli)V. Conclusion – Intentionally or not, it very closely resembles the circumstances, values and people of the original Tea Party. A. In this speech I informed you about the Tea Party movement. B. As a review, these are the things I addressed: 1. The modern Tea Party and the original tea party are movements that are very similar. 2. Ive addressed the complaints about the modern Tea Party movement. 3. Ive compared members of the tea party movements of now and the 1760s to 1770s. C. Whether you like what they want to accomplish, the Tea Party consists of one- fifth of the electorate and it consists of people accustomed to accomplishing their goals. D. Tie back to introduction story. (VISUAL AID: Shopping hot rod)
