A key factor of good public speaking is understanding your audience. This is especially important when preparing arguments and persuasive appeals. Thus, for this activity you need to present the argument or thesis for your persuasive speech, and do a little audience analysis of your own based on comments in the discussion.
- Post a new thread with your topic/argument for your persuasive speech. Then, ask your classmates the following:
- Do you strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, or strongly disagree with this argument?
- What questions do you hope this speech answers?
- What more would you want to learn during the course of this speech?
