How to Classify Informative Speeches

Present a full-sentence speech outline of the informative speech on your topic.

Interestingly capture the audience’s attention. Relate your topic to the audience or how the information may be useful to them. Include your general-purpose statement, specific purpose statement, and central idea statement in your outline. Provide a clear preview of your thesis or central idea about what your speech will cover. The body includes the main points you selected. Make sure to give some background and systematically organize your main points. Conduct your original research and search for credible sources. Your sources should include newspapers, magazines, books, Internet research, or original data from professional journals.
