It is time to brainstorm! Using the techniques you have learned for brainstormin

It is time to brainstorm! Using the techniques you have learned for brainstorming, choose four different current event topics that you might want to cover in your presentation, the informative speech delivered in week 6. For each topic, list the general purpose statement, a specific purpose statement, the central idea, and a few potential points. Include a paragraph or two describing your thoughts on the usefulness of brainstorming and the ways you can improve its use in the future. HERE IS AN EXAPMLE
Abstract
Incorporating this week’s lesson on brainstorming techniques I have chosen four different topics
based on a future informative speech. I have included the topic, general purpose statement,
specific purpose statement and a few potential key points. I have concluded this assignment with
a brief paragraph explaining the usefulness brainstorming provides when organizing potential
speech topics.
Keywords: brainstorming, informative speech, topic, general purpose, specific purpose Brainstorming Your Way to a Great Topic
Topic: ICE Detention Centers
General Purpose Statement: To inform
Specific Purpose Statement: To inform my audience on the living conditions inside ICE
migrant detention centers
Central Idea: Reports of migrant detention centers are surfacing regarding living
conditions, highlighting violations against fundamental human rights, access to legal
services, and unsanitary overcrowding.
Potential Points:
– Explain what ICE stands for
– Explain why detention centers have been formed across the country
– Inform my audience on the horrid conditions found in these detention centers
– Inform my audience on the lack of health and legal services provided for its detainees
Topic: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
General Purpose Statement: To inform
Specific Purpose Statement: To inform my audience about the benefits of the DACA
program on undocumented youth
Central Idea: The DACA program was formed to assist udocumented youth offering aid
in a variety of ways proving success in areas such as work authorization, deportation
protection, and attaining higher education.
Potential Points:
3
– Explain what the DACA program is and who their recipients are
– Provide success stories and statistics of the benefits the
DACA program provides for its recipients
– Inform my audience that The DACA initiative also benefits the economy
and other aspects of our current society Concluding Paragraph
There are many things going on in the world right now and often at times it feels hard
trying to organize and keep up with the everchanging information. Thankfully through
the use of brainstorming I was able to cluster my personal inventory narrowing down four
specific topics. The brainstorming techniques I have learned from “The Art of Public
Speaking” has allowed me to choose topics that I found were considerably important to
me. As stated in “The Art of Public Speaking”, “when the general purpose is to inform,
you act as a teacher or lecturer.” As the role of an educator in an informative speech it is
imperative to me to pass on any knowledge I have learned to my audience “clearly,
accurately, and interestingly.” In the future I would like to sharpen my internet searching
skills by accessing the west coast university library, it’s database holds a variety of
credible journals and excerpts that I could potentially use as sources within my speech. And the reference page

Speech Analysis Essay Guidelines
EXL Designation: This assignment provides a hands-on learning experience for students. You get to apply what you have learned about speech development, organization, and delivery in your critique. Attend a public (live) speech/presentation of 15 minutes or longer and write a speech analysis essay of 3-5 pages (Ariel, 12-point font, double-spaced, full-sentence, and paragraph format). This can be a special lecture, guest speaker, conference presentation, or any live speaking event. If you attend an event before we cover certain material listed below, you should read ahead so that you can adequately use the criteria in your analysis. PART I: List the speaker, date, location, & topic, and describe the audience. Describe each of these elements and analyze the effect that each of these elements had on the speaker and/or speech (1/2 to 1 page).
PART II: Describe and analyze the effectiveness of each part of the speaker’s introduction (attention getter, revelation of topic, statement of credibility, statement of central idea, preview of main points) (1/2 to 1 page). PART III: Summarize each of the speaker’s main points. What pattern of organization did the speaker utilize? Was this effective? Why or why not (1/2 to 1 page).
PART IV: Describe and analyze the effectiveness of the evidence/supporting material that the speaker used (1/2 to 1 page). PART V: Describe and analyze the effectiveness of the speaker’s language (1/2 to 1 page). PART VI: Describe and analyze the effectiveness of the speaker’s delivery (1/2 to 1 page). PART VII: Describe and analyze the effectiveness of each part of the speaker’s conclusion (1/2 to 1 page).
Speech Analysis Essay: Essays will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria: A = Thoughtful, insightful, excellent discussion and application of chapter theory and concepts; vivid, concrete examples used to support ideas; well organized; appropriate use of grammar and spelling. ‘A’ papers are above and beyond what is expected, and are always of very high quality. B = Thoughtful, good discussion and application of chapter theory and concepts; examples used to support ideas have some vivid, concrete detail; well organized; appropriate use of grammar and spelling. ‘B’ papers are good, but lack the excellence need for an ‘A’ grade. C = Some application of chapter theory and concepts; dearth of examples with vivid, concrete detail to support ideas; fair organization; some grammar and spelling errors; some directions ignored; ‘C’ papers are usually shorter than required and lack evidence of the time and thought that goes into an ‘A’ paper.

Relational Transgressions
Sooner or later, even the strongest relationships hit a bumpy patch. Some problems arise from outside forces: work, finances, competing relationships, and so on. Relational transgressions happen when one partner violates the explicit or implicit terms of the relationship, letting the other one down in some important way.
Types of Relational Transgressions: There are several ways to transgress in a relationship:
Lack of Commitment
Failure to honor important obligations (e.g., financial, emotional, task-related)
Self-serving dishonesty
Unfaithfulness
Distance
Physical separation (beyond what is necessary)
Psychological separation (avoidance, ignoring)
Disrespect
Criticism (especially in front of third parties)
Problematic Emotions
Jealousy
Unjustified suspicion
Rage
Aggression
Verbal hostility
Physical violence
As you think about transgressions you’ve experienced, you will recognize that there are several dimensions to each one. Some are deliberate. Some are unintentional. Some are a one time thing, verses incremental or repetitive. 1. Discuss a time someone has relationally transgressed against you. Was it a minor or major transgression (see pg. 305)
2. What advice does your textbook give with regards to how to handle the situation? 3. Do you think the advice would work in your situation? Why or why not? .

“A Day Without Electronic Media” 3-4 pages
We live in a media saturated world, yet most of us don’t consider the effect it has on our lives. According to Danna Walker, Professor of Communications at American University, “Many of you are what researchers call “millennials”, those born between 1980 and 2000. Your generation will constitute the largest generation in American history. You will outnumber baby boomers by as much as 33%. Most of you grew up with computers and television in your home. You started life with VCR’s, CD’s, digital video, and MP3s. You were the first generation to link up to cell phones, instant messaging, and texting. Personal computers came of age when you were born and you grew up with the World Wide Web and e-mail. Not to mention Nintendo, Game Boy, Sony PlayStation, GameCube and Xbox. Yet although you are emotionally attached, educated, and savvy consumers of electronic media you don’t think much about it.”
In this experiment you will discover how a complete ban on all digital electronic media effects your communication with others for better or for worse.
INSTRUCTIONS
For this assignment students will go without the use of electronic media for 12 hours.
Your 12 hour span starts the moment you wake up and continues straight for 12 hours. At the end of your 12 hour “shift” you can use whatever media you like.
At the end of this time students will write a 3-page (750 word minimum) paper detailing their experience and feelings regarding the experience.
Students must discuss how they spent their day.
Students must discuss how the absence of electronic media effected their communication with others. I want details please.
Students must discuss feelings, reactions, and thoughts regarding their day and the assignment.
If you slip up or cheat you must start the 12 hours over again.
I will know from reading your papers whether or not you really did the assignment. There are certain tell-tale signs of those who really did it and those who fake it and try to write it like they think it should sound. If you fake it, you will earn an F on the assignment.
Papers Must:
Be typed, 12 point font, MLA format
Include proper spelling, grammar, and sentence/paragraph structure.
Include a cover page Include proper essay format (Introduction, body, conclusion)
So, what do you have to go without? Here’s the list:
No cell phones
No T.V.
No movie theaters
No DVD, DVR, streaming services (Netflix, Hulu etc…)
No CD’s, iTunes, Spotify etc..
No AM/FM radio, no satellite radio, etc…
No iPod, Airpods or MP3 or like devices
No video games, tablets, hand held games or like devices
No computers of any kind, e-mail, instant messaging, texting, snapchat or social media of any kind

In other words, it reviews what others in the field say and provides for the basis for what you say and why what you say is different than what we already know and is worth studying.
You integrate your research into your paper not in the format of this annotated bibliography, but as a separate section that explains to the reader why your scholarly research leads to your argument (which you present in the deep analysis section).
