Fall Semester Final
Assignment: Develop and present an oral and visual presentation on an issue you are interested in. The presentation must include an argument but may address any of the purposes of argument outlined in Everything’s an Argument (chapter 1). We encourage this topic to relate to a career choice you would like to explore.
Audience: Your peers and teacher.
← Prepared speech of 3-6 minutes
← Visual support of argument-must be large enough to be seen by all in audience (see chapter 14) ← Dress for your presentation
← MLA works cited page with at least 4 reliable sources supporting argument-no content farms ← 1 page typed analysis of your rhetorical choices: purpose, choice of topic, relevance and effect of visual, relevance and effect of dress, and consideration of audience
When choosing your topic, formulating your position, and drafting your argument, consider this advice from chapter 15: “You’ll need to decide on your own the form of presentation that best fits your topic, purpose, and audience” (467).
