In chapters 11, 12, & 13 the text explained the importance of an outline. An outline allows you to order your ideas and evidence into small and large categories. The main points are the larger divisions and the smaller ones are the sub divisions of the main points. In a speech there are three main parts, the introduction, the body, and the conclusion. The introduction is used to explain the purpose of the speech and why it is important for the audience to know about the topic. The body of the speech is used to present the main points and the supporting material. As for the conclusion, this brings the speech to an end and restates the purpose, and summarizes the speech as well. The main points of a speech are for the major claims and the key ideas. There should only be between two and seven main points. This is because if there is less main points the better the chances that your audience will pay more attention. Also, each main point should be limited to one idea. The supporting points organize the evidence, and in an outline supporting points are in a subordinate position to the main points which can be shown by an indentation. Outlines also have coordination and subordination where the ideas are in a logical placement with each other. Coordinate points are ideas that are given equal weight with one another. It is important to use transitions in a speech, and in an outline as well. Transitions should be used between speech points and there is a variety of transitions a person can use such as a rhetorical question.

There is many ways to organize your speech points. A person can do it chronologically where the points are in a natural sequence with each other. It can also be in a spatial pattern. This is when your speech is describing a physical arrangement of a place or an object. Arranging speech points using a cause-effect pattern is another way to organize your speech. Also the points can be organized in a problem-solution pattern where the main points are organized to show the significance of the problem and show a proposed solution. Additionally there is the topical pattern of arrangement and the narrative pattern of arrangement. The topical pattern can be used in an information speech and a narrative pattern can be used if the speech consists of a story or many stories.

When organizing a speech it is important to create two outlines, a working outline and a speaking outline. The working outline is used to organize the main points and develop the supporting points. It also should contain the entire speech. The speaking outline is the one where you practice and actually present the speech. Speaking outlines contain ideas in a more brief form than the working outlines. A speech can be organized using sentences, phrases or key words. Each outline determines how you will deliver the speech. For example using a key word outline allows the speaker to maintain more eye contact because the key words will act as a reminder and therefore you will be able to deliver your ideas easier. It is essential to create the working outline first and after you draft your introduction, body, and conclusion make sure to indicate your sources and to create a title. In the examples in the book each point was kept short and simple, and there was a lot of transitions to the next ideas. Finally, when you are ready to construct a speaking outline, shorten the long sentences or phrases from your working outline to key words or phrases. Include delivery cues and practice the speech many times. In the speaking outline example, everything is shorter than the working outline, and also it shows helpful reminders for the speaker when presenting. As shown both a working outline and a speaking outline are important for creating a successful speech.lvi.indd xl LearningCurve adaptive quizzing e-readings 21/10/14 5:01 PM Contents xli Use Concrete
