LA 2005 - Speech (Curtis-Beaman)

Informing your Audience

Writing your Informative Speech

Your informative speech should rely on communal wisdom. For example, I might talk about racing in sailboats. I would talk about the various rules, what types of boats are involved, and what the parts of the boats are called. 

I might look to professional and club organizations to find pictures to support my presentation.
