Persuasion in the Media Speech
STC 431: Persuasive CommunicationPersuasion in the Media Speech2-4 minutes, 20 pointsOverviewThis 2-4 minute speech requires you to locate and apply 2 media examples to what you have been learning about persuasion. You will develop your ability to make connections between textbook material and media you encounter daily. You will also use presentation software and practice public speaking to prepare for your final speech at the end of the semester.Guidelines1. Locate 2 media examples (television or radio commercial, PSA, YouTube video, song, comic, print ad, photograph, image, etc.) that illustrate aspects of the persuasion concept that has been assigned to you (see sign-up sheet). These examples should APPLY the concept, not define it. For example, if your topic is cognitive dissonance, you should use examples that might cause or utilize cognitive dissonance, NOT a video of a lecture by a professor that defines cognitive dissonance. Don’t just Google cognitive dissonance and use the first 2 things that pop up. 2. Using PowerPoint or Prezi, prepare a 2-4 minute speech that includes a clear and concise explanation of your concept. Share the media examples and discuss how the examples illustrate your concept.3. Include a slide (PowerPoint) or path step (Prezi) with your references in APA format. At minimum, you must include the textbook and the source of your media examples as references.4. Deliver your speech within the 2-4 minute time frame. The media examples will be included as part of your time, so plan accordingly. Record your speech using the software of your choice. One program I recommend is Screencast-o-matic, which you can download from https://screencast-o-matic.com/ 5. Submit your screencast of your presentation on Canvas.
