Homework for 04/21/2009

Ok, so this week we do not have a chapter meeting because it is Easter, and I think the turnout would be pretty brutal.

Your homework for when we readjourn on the 21st is to add analogies, quotes, statistics, and examples to all of the points in your speeches. Find this stuff online and use your imagination! You don't have to go down the checklist for each and every last one of them, but your speeches will have much more depth if you can start creating a more concrete picture in the minds of your audience for what you are trying to do. So if you're going to be giving a speech about global warming, you're going to want to say, "We should recyle our water bottles because according to a study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a single water bottle takes approximately 1000 years to decompose, and Americans drink approximately 28 billion bottles of water every year," rather than, "Go green. It's a good idea."

Have a great two weeks!
