Prepare and deliver a persuasive speech that would be approximately two minutes (equates to two typed pages) in length in which you persuade your audience to be either for or against a fact, value, or policy; or to act/do something. Often, a more controversial issue will provoke an audience more than one that no one really cares about. Be sure to steer clear of topics that are overdone. These include abortion, capital punishment, euthanasia, etc.
Before recording, please view an example to guide you in your preparation and delivery of a persuasive speech.

A minimum of two references are required and must be included and credited within the speech.
It is recommended that you complete a speech outline to aid in your delivery.
This speech must be submitted in video format (Webcam or Smart Device). Please make sure to stabilize your camera before recording and filter any background noise. Your speech should be a minimum of 2 minutes in length. If your speech is more than 4 minutes long or 85 MB, you will need to compress your files before uploading. Please submit an e-ticket from the TLC homepage if you have problems uploading due to file size.
MyTLC Courses only supports the following media formats: SWF, MPG, MPEG, RM, MP3, MP4*, M4V*, M4A*, AVI, WAV, RAM, ASF, MOV, and RA.
You may use 4 x 6 note cards and deliver your remarks extemporaneously (not read word for word).
Please stand for your speech delivery and be aware that your dress is important to speech delivery. In some cases, your attire can act as a visual aid. Inappropriate and distracting clothing (e.g., text printed on shirt, graphics, and loud colors) and accessories (e.g., sparkly and noisy jewelry) can prevent your speech from being received well or interpreted correctly, and can hinder the establishment of the speaker/audience relationship.
