Presentation Speech

THE PRESENTATION SPEECH The object of this speech is to present someone of relative fame to a particular audience and should model one of the speeches discussed in Chapter 19 (Special-Occasion Speaking) with the EXCEPTION of the eulogy and award acceptance speeches (as they do not fit the format of this speech).  Your person may be alive or dead, real or fictional (please stick to facts about your person, even if they are fictional), locally famous or known more world-wide.  Your information sheet should include  1) who you are (introduce yourself and establish your credibility); 2) what type of audience we are (e.g., people attending the Academy Awards, the American Medical Association, etc.); 3) the occasion (e.g., award presentation, introduction of a new chairperson, funeral, etc.); 4) the type of speech you are giving (from Chapter 19) and finally, 5) the name of the person you are presenting

.  Your introduction should include the information above, EXCEPT THE NAME OF THE PERSON YOU ARE PRESENTING.  The body of your speech should contain information about your person beginning with less-commonly-known information about the person and lead to more commonly known facts and figures about the person.  THE INFORMATION IN YOUR SPEECH SHOULD BE RELEVANT TO THE OCCASION YOU PICKED.  Feel free to be creative (yet still formal, remember its your final exam!) in your approach (this does not mean, however, that the speech should lack organization or a professional approach–always remember your audience and your purpose).  Feel free to create a new organization, award, or even your own credibility, but all research/information about your person must be factual and supported by evidence. The speech should be five minutes long and should have a minimum of six cited references within the text of your speech.  Presentation aids are optional.   THIS IS A SCRIPT FOR ME TO READ TO MY VIRTUAL CLASS.
