Wendell Berry begins the text by presenting the readers a clear title which principally sets the setting and over all gives the readers a thought of what the content will be about. In the first paragraph, Berry presents his argument by reviewing the topic 's two contradicting groups : the individuals who coexist with nature and other people who don 't. Berry decides to concentrate on the significance of the two groups and their differences and avoids voicing his own opinion. Then again, his comment on the perils of the contradicting groups clarifies the significance of the topic at hand and is fundamentally a persuasive element which induces the reader’s interest and persuades them to continue reading the text.
Brian and Matt had an interesting speech on Henry Huidekoper. Henry Heuidekoper received a M.A. degree from Harvard in 1892. He was a major general of the PA guard who was awarded a Medal of Honor in 1905 from the Battle of Gettysburg. During the battle, Heuidekoper turned the battle in the Union’s favor. Henry was mostly active in other parts of Pennsylvania, but the Huidekoper family has an entire plot in Greendale. I found their speech interesting because part of my research paper was on the battle of Gettysburg. From their speech, I liked that they started with an outline of the entire speech. This helped me know what to expect from the speech and what particular parts I was going to be more interested in. I also liked how Brian and Matt switched between each other during different topics. It was more interesting to hear each of them talk for about 2 minutes at a time rather than just one of them talking for 4 minutes and then the other. And I though the amount of eye contact the used was good. They weren’t staring at their note cards at all times, but
All Speeches have there ups and down Its how you present it that really matters. If you have an organized speech your speech will present itself because it will flow out naturally. Making sure that you have constant eye contact with the audience will help sound you more credible. Most importantly making sure that the topic that you have chosen makes sense to what you are doing. While listening to the current even speech that Napoleon Dynamite did and the speech that SpongeBob Square Pants did it is clear that one has practiced more and demonstrated better speech concepts.
As a president of America, the credibility of Lyndon Baines Johnson is well-established. He did not have to establish his credibility as everyone already knows it and he is a trustworthy source. But, as his audiences are young adults, so he still try to boost his credibility at the beginning of the speech with the joke about coeducation college student partying to let the students know he has been there too.
Giving a speech whether being for the public or not, offers personal, professional, and public benefits for the individual. The individual might find it easier to obtain a profession, build better relationships amongst peers, or even propel social movements by carefully constructing and delivering a well thought out speech. A speech needs to be excellent in order to do such things; it needs to have a clear concise thesis, a preview statement, a great organizational pattern, supporting material, memory, delivery and good representation of oneself. Thus, during the process of constructing and delivering a speech, one must have those aspects. This will ensure the speaker will deliver a powerful and moving speech. Within the upcoming paragraphs
Qualification: (Tell listeners your personal experience with your topic, making you qualified to affect their opinions about it.)
23) Who is the Speaker and to whom is he/she giving the speech? What is the THESIS of this person’s speech?
To improve my speech, I would first and foremost talk slower. I talk at such a fast pace when I get nervous and it is distracting for my audience. Next I would place my first object in a better spot so that it does not fall while I am talking. Additionally, I would better use my notecards. I had them for this speech but I practiced it so much I seemed to just memorize it and did not even bother to look at them. If I had looked at them I would not have forgotten what I think was an important sentence in my conclusion.
b. Paragraph construction: Did I start each paragraph with a clear topic sentence? Did I follow the topic sentence with supporting details? Click on the link for tips on How to Write a Good Paragraph.
The analysis I made was based on Douglas McGray’s article “Lost in America”. You did a great job starting your introduction in a creative way using a question as attention-grabber. It is an effective strategy to grab the reader’s attention. You briefly summarized the article’s main points; it provides readers a brief explanation of what will be further analyzed. You also established a very solid thesis statement with a purpose, audience and rhetorical device being analyzed. It shows that you have a strong understanding of the purpose of the article. However, in order to make your thesis clearer, you should specify the author’s purpose of persuading or informing his audience. Saying only that the author argues does not specify his purpose toward
I was most challenged by the “Summary Response”, but my difficulties with writing the paper
One of the most impressive and influential skills that someone can have is the ability to give a speech in which they can convey their message to their audience along with keeping the audience attentive. Many factors play into the ability to deliver a good speech to a crowd. First, the speaker must be able to grab the attention of the audience. Then, the speaker should build their credibility about the topic that they are speaking about if it is not obvious. After this the speaker will begin to explain what the main idea or ideas of the speech will be and proceed to go into more depth about each one of the ideas. After the ideas are explained the speaker will signal that the speech is coming to an end then they will conclude the speech with
The career I am going to pursue will be a Certified Nurse Anesthetist. A CRNA provides anesthesia and related care before, during, and after surgical, therapeutic, diagnostic, and obstetrical procedures (BLS 1). Nurse anesthetists are also referred as advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), before a procedure begins, Nurse anesthetists discusses with a patient of any medications the patient is taking as well as any allergies or illnesses the patient may have, so that anesthesia can be safely administered.

I delivered my informative speech on the Culper Spy Ring extemporaneously and used six pages of speaker notes to help keep my speech on track. I also arrived to class early as usual in order to set up the PowerPoint before class started. Another student agreed to record my speech, which was about twelve minutes long.
Selina Juul had a central idea from the beginning of her persuasive speech. The speaker’s central idea was about persuading people to stop wasting food. Juul did not deviate from her central idea or from her main points of her speech. She introduced the topic, main points with supporting facts, visual aids, and a conclusion. Juul was able to also implement her thesis and factual facts to support her entire speech presentation. She also added her personal experience with people in her native country where there is no food waste in comparison to the United States. Overall, Juul stayed focus with her central idea about the importance to stop food wasting and ways to prevent it.
