1. Target time: 9 minutes (usually around 4.5 pages)
2. Subject matter: You must deliver a speech designed to persuade your audience for or against a question of policy. What defines a “question of policy” is explained in APS, Chapter 16. As also explained in the APS, you will have to establish the need, plan, and practicality of your position, using strong supporting evidence (Chapter 8) and cogent argumentation (Chapter 17). Recognize that in this speech you are acting as an advocate on behalf of the policy you propose.
3. Sources: a minimum of six sources, at least two of which must be scholarly sources. You may use websites, but only one website may count toward the required four sources.
You are not required to use a visual aid.
4. Citing sources and bibliography: You must include a bibliography listing all sources referenced in your speech. Please follow one of the accepted in-text citation and bibliographic formats noted for the informative speech. Just as you did with the informative speech, remember that to “count as a source” you actually have to cite that source in-text and then also list it in the bibliography.
5. Format and delivery: As you did in your informative speech, you should write your persuasive speech using a full-sentence prep outline. And, as with the informative speech, you are required to deliver your remarks extemporaneously using a non-full-sentence speaking outline.
