Communication is used to inform, to persuade and to analyze. In this assignment, you will write a speech that provides your audience information about a topic (My major is intelligence studies, and my field of studies is middle eastern studies. For my speech I will write about the “what terrorism is and its danger to society.”) Your presentation will be submitted in the form of a Power Point presentation. Your speech should be a minimum of 1000 words long, including the total from the Power Point slides, and either the text of your speech in the Notes section of Power Point, OR in an audio recording that you attach.
Recording your speech is optional.
Your speech should include an introduction which identifies your main point, a body in which you provide support for your main point, and a conclusion that wraps up your presentation and says something about the significance of what you’ve presented, just as you would do in a paper.
