Comparison of Two Persuasive Formats
This comparison can be helpful in the following ways:

1. As a learning device. It may be easier for you to understand Monroe’s Motivated Sequence (a persuasive outline) by comparing it with the traditional outline (used for your informative speeches).

2. As an alternative outline choice for your persuasive speech. If you decide to use the problem/solution approach in your speech, then you may follow the outline format below (Monroe’s Motivated Sequence) or you may follow the example of outlines 4 through 7. It is important to note that whichever of the two outline formats for Monroe’s Motivated Sequence you select, the approach is the same; that is, first you describe the problem, then you present the solution.
