CMU Prof. Randy Pausch

"Really achieving your childhood dreams"

Lect 13W


The responsibility of a speaker

giving an Informative Speech, is to say something worth hearing.

giving a Persuasive Speech, is to answer the audience's doubts & objections.

giving a Special Occasion Speech, is to remind the audience of what's really important.

Lect 13W


Resources you'll need to give a great Special Occasion speech.

  • A point!

  • Compelling organization.

  • Compelling language.

Lect 13W


1. Your point: What is important?

General purpose:

to inspire ("Commemorative")

to entertain ("After Dinner")

Specific Purpose

Central Idea

Lect 13W


Example: the "Last Lecture"

Specific Purpose: to entertain and inspire us with stories of how he achieved--and failed to achieve--his childhood dreams.

Central Idea: In dreaming, trying, and failing we learn the imagination, perseverance and sense of fun we need to succeed--and to help others succeed, too.

Lect 13W


Central Idea=Basic Values

Values are what is most important.

  • the things we care about

  • our visions of what we want to achieve

  • what makes us who we are

    either as individuals or as a community.

Lect 13W


What "hats" do ISU students wear?

ISU Students--what are your values?

What do you really care about?

What makes you who you are?

What makes you

who you are, as a community?

Lect 13W


You might think of it this way:

As a Special Occasion speaker,

you are creating community.

Lect 13W


So remember:

Whether you are aiming to entertain or to inspire,

you should have a Central Idea--

one that expresses the values you want to remind your audience about.

You should leave your audience thinking!

Lect 13W


2. Compelling organization

Remember all these? Use them!

Speech Introductions (CARRP), Speech Conclusions, Connectives, Outlining, Patterns of Organization

Likely organizational scheme: Topical.

So remember:

Have a reason for why your points are in the order they are!

Lect 13W


Compelling language.

Why use "high style"?

  • "Dress up" your speech.

  • Reinforce your organization.

  • Make your values real for your audience.
