Persuasive speeches attempt to change or reinforce an audience’s attitudes, beliefs, or actions. The three major types of persuasive speeches address questions of fact, questions of value, and questions of policy. This specific type of speech has the overall goal of convincing the audience to accept her or his point of view. A good persuasive speech has an arrangement of ideas intended to cause the audience to accept all or part of the expressed view. A successful persuasive presentation can completely change the trajectory of someone’s view on a topic – the viewer should take the author’s side by the end of the speech.

References in Speech and Outline

You need to have a properly formatted APA reference list that matches your speech oral citations and any other in-text citations you may have. Though you only need three oral citations, you may have many more in-text citations and references–as many as you need for the content you’re using. Remember that in-text citations and your reference list are a two way street. If you have an in-text citation, you need a corresponding reference at the end. If you have a reference at the end, you need at least one in-text citation for that source. You MUST have in-text citations. Without them your online TAs do not know what content comes from which source. It is imperative that you properly cite any and all information you looked up. If you had to look something up, cite it. When it doubt, cite it. Citations are like a safety net. You can never be accused of plagiarism if you have a citation for your information. Always error on the side of citing too many things than not enough. You’re better to be safe and have a citation than risk an academic honor violation. This goes for paraphrasing and quotes; both always need in-text citations. Your oral citations are worked into the content of your speech, not said at the end like you would type them. You may use them with quoted information or you may paraphrase the info you get from that source and still have an oral citation. It’s up to you.
