To continue our discussions on Public Speaking and preparing you for the upcoming speech, we’ll talk about the contexts of your speech and focus of your topic. We’ll also decide if we are giving informative or persuasive speeches (they’re informative :)).We also talk about other public speaking contexts, such as for celebration. In the case of this Issa Rae speech at the Women In Film Gala she is giving an acceptance speech. But it’s Issa Rae, and if you’ve seen her work on YouTube as “Awkward Black Girl”, which she created, wrote and starred in (as well as produced and a bunch of other parts as well), or her HBO show “insecure”, you know she really likes playing with humor.So this is kind of a fun speech to review before beginning your work this week. (And I’ve included a persuasive and informative speech from TED Talks in the Additional Learning Materials this week. I recommend watching both, if you can find the time.)Discussion Topic: Discussion 10: Rough Draft Outline Peer ReviewsDiscussion 10: Rough Draft Outline Peer ReviewsFor this discussion, you’ll attach your current draft of your outline for Speech: Tell us about your culture.
