General purpose statement: To inform, to persuade, to inspire, to celebrate, to mourn, or to entertain.

Specific purpose statement: According to O’Hair, Stewart, and Rubenstein, a specific purpose statement “expresses both the topic and the general speech purpose in action form and in terms of the specific objectives you hope to achieve.” For instance, the bog turtle habitat activist might write the following specific purpose statement: At the end of my speech, the Clarke County Zoning Commission will understand that locating businesses in bog turtle habitat is a poor choice with a range of negative consequences. In short, the general purpose statement lays out the broader goal of the speech while the specific purpose statement describes precisely what the speech is intended to do.

Thesis statement (central idea):  You will want to convert the specific purpose statement into a thesis statement that you will share with your audience. A thesis statement encapsulates the main points of a speech in just a sentence or two, and it is designed to give audiences a quick preview of what the entire speech will be about. 

Organizational pattern: chronological, spatial, topical


Complete this section using the explanations below

I. Attention-getter: The first function of the introduction is to the get the attention AND the interest of the audience. Share a fact, statistic, quote, example, etc.

II. Audience relevance: Make the speech relevant to the audience. What can the audience learn from your speech?

III. Central idea: State the thesis of your speech. In all speeches, there should be that one sentence, that one statement that succinctly and accurately lets the audience know what the speech will be about and what the speaker plans to accomplish in the speech.

IV. Credibility statement: Credibility is your believability. You are credible when the audience thinks you know what you are talking about. External credibility is the type of credibility you as a speaker gain by association: use of sources that the audience finds credible, for example, an expert or physician. You develop internal credibility as the speaker through specific actions. First, be appropriately attired for a public presentation. Second, make eye contact with the audience before you speak. Third, speak clearly, fluently and confidently.

V. Preview statement: The preview statement lets the audience know HOW you will develop the speech. A preview can be understood as a roadmap—a direction for the speech that leads to a successful conclusion. A preview lets the audience know what will come first, what comes next, and so on, to the end of the speech.

1. Summarize and Close: In the conclusion of this speech, one effective method to summarize and wrap-up is to simply restate the thesis and preview—but in the past tense, since we have now heard the speech.

2. Appeals and Challenges: Appeals are generally phrased more as requests, while challenges can take on a more forceful tone, almost ordering or daring audiences to engage in thought or action.

3. End with a clincher: Share a story, fact, statistic, quote, example, or humor.
