...Persuasive Speech Outline Your Name: David Anthony Jones Moraes COMS 101 Section B05 Date Due: July 5th, 2013 Organization: Problem-Solution. Audience analysis: Christian ESL private school teachers in Brazil. Topic: I intend to address the problem of corruption in Brazil, paying special attention to its effect on education. Rhetorical Purpose: To inform my audience about corruption in Brazil, and to persuade them that the church in Brazil should pray for their country in response to this information. Redemptive Purpose: This social problem prevents people from experiencing life as God intended it to be because “God values government as an executor of His righteousness” (Alban, 2012., p. 75) and there is no righteousness in corruption. My proposed solution qualifies as redemptive according to the Alban text because it promotes the fact that “God values the church as an equipper of believers for doing God's redemptive work in the world” (Alban, 2012., p. 75). I. Attention-getter Quote by Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” II.

...Lucy Vue Public Speaking NE 11A.M Janet Nobles Informative Speech Outline Objective: To inform To inform the audience about a history background of the Hmong people. Intro: I have a lot of people asking me this question every time they finished asking me what nationality I am. What is Hmong? That triggers me! Sometimes it is heard for me to answer them because I don’t know the real answer to it and I would just say “we are Asian, we don’t have a country and we are not Mongolian.” This question, what is Hmong finally led me to research on my own people history, therefore I finally found out interesting information. I. What is Hmong? a) Hmong are an ethnic group from the mountain regions of China, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. b) The Hmong claim an origin in the Yellow River region of China. In Martha Ratliff’s 2004 book, Vocabulary of Environment and Subsistence in Proto-language, there is linguistic evidence to suggest that they have occupied the same areas of southern China for at least the past 2,000 years. c) 'Miao' people, a group with whom Hmong people are often identified. II. Hmong Rituals and Culture a) An article in www. Pbs.org stated about the Hmong religion is traditionally animist. According to Hmong cosmology, the human body is the host for a number of souls.
