the situation, the topic, and the audience. The informative speech was one of the harder speeches I had to give since it had to include more research, and more hard facts then the previous speeches. Therefore, it needed more preparation. During preparation part of the informative speech a key learning moment for me was that you can’t procrastinate and do it the night before. That means don’t procrastinate on topic selection, research, or on the crafting of the outline and speech. The book states that “For most brief speeches (under 10 minutes), you should allow at least one week from topic selection to speech delivery” (Beebe, 68). Not procrastinating…
On Friday, October 21st, I presented my informative speech on the history of the sunflower and sunflower oil production. This was my third speech of the semester and my first informative speech. I felt that I had done adequate research on my speech topic and therefore felt confident about giving my speech. In my next speech, I believe that I could improve my use of visual aids, nonverbal communication, and improve my speech time. However, I do feel that there were components of my speech that…

Though, the transition from subjective to objective was successful. Notably, the concept of summary aided in constructing the annotated bibliographies. Which, helped with one of the harder assignments: The Informative Synthesis. Within the informative synthesis, there was a use of summary and an incorporation…

To be totally honest I can easily tell you a story about when I first started procrastinating years ago or I can simply tell you that this very moment I am procrastinating. I was assigned to write an informative essay or whatever I like for English 101. Our professor gave us a two weeks’ notice to write this essay which is enough time to produce something worth reading. In my mind, I calculated and planned all the time that I was going to use to actually sit down and produce this essay though it…
A common debate in society today is vaccinations. Weather or not to get a child vaccinated has become a major topic on the playground. Parents have a choice and with that choice they have two very informative reliable sides to choose from. Each side of this debate has facts and sufficient evidence to support their side. With that being said it is necessary to look at each side carefully because there is no middle ground on this debate. There is to get vaccinated or not.
This debate has not…
