Characteristics of a Speech

  • Hook, or attention getter, makes the audience want to listen to the rest of the speech.
  • The three main points summary in introduction are clear.
  • Each of the three main points begins by announcing what the point would be about.
  • It is clear when one main point ends and the next begins.
  • Address your audience within the speech a couple of times.
  • Remember a speech is to be read aloud.

characteristics of a feature article
Characteristics of a Feature Article
  • Purpose could be to entertain, and to inform, as well as evoke an emotional reaction
  • Not necessarily persuasive, but there is an angle or a slant about the topic.
  • Audience is specific and authentic
  • Idea development is based upon facts that are expanded to provide depth and personal insight
  • Possibly light and airy, conversational in tone. Personal voice evident.
  • Conclusion brings closure, leaves the reader thinking and feeling about topic.
characteristics of an argument
Characteristics of an Argument
  • You may get a prompt that says “Create an argument…”
  • This is just simply a persuasive essay in which you choose one side of an issue and argue for that side.
  • You will still use the five paragraph format with one change.
  • For the argument you HAVE TO address the counterpoints.
    • This can be done within your body paragraphs.
      • Address a counter point as you write about each point.

OR

    • This could be done as a separate paragraph (meaning 6 total paragraphs).
      • If you choose this route I would put the counterpoint paragraph after your lead paragraph. That way you do not leave your audience thinking about the other side of the issue.
