Discussion board | Rhetoric and Public Speaking | Houston Baptist University

The purpose of this discussion board forum is to provide a way in which you can demonstrate your understanding of the basic organizational patterns for a speech, the influence of the quality of your ideas, and the underlying principles of sound organization by completing the following tasks in an initial discussion board thread:

1. Create a topic for each of the basic organizational patterns.

2. Create an outline for each of the organizational patterns explained in your course textbook.  Please use Microsoft Word to create your outline and submit it as an attachment with your initial discussion board thread. 

3. Explain how the quality of your ideas helped you with matching topics and patterns.

4. Write a 150-200 word summary of the underlying principles of sound organization.

In addition to the initial thread, you are required to reply to 2 other peers’ threads. Each reply must be 150-200 words in length and be substantive in content, adding to the discussion the peer began in his/her initial thread. Your replies should address any differences found in your initial thread and theirs, provide feedback on their outline, as well as further expand upon what you have learned through this learning activity. 

To facilitate discussion, post earlier than required and check back regularly. You may also post more than the required minimum responses if you choose.

Using the information in the course textbook regarding speech development, listen to two speeches from an online source. YouTube is a great place to find speeches. Once you have selected and viewed two speeches, create an initial thread and respond to the following prompts:

  • Provide the title for the two speeches you chose and the URLs/hyperlinks of where you found them online.
  • Describe why you chose to two speeches to evaluate. 
  • Evaluate the speeches concerning their topic choices, organizational styles, strategic choices, introductions, and conclusions.

In addition to the initial thread, you are required to reply to 2 other peers’ threads. Each reply must be 150-200 words in length and be substantive in content, adding to the discussion the peer began in his/her initial thread. Your replies should address any differences found in your initial thread and theirs, as well as further expand upon what you have learned through this learning activity. 

To facilitate discussion, post earlier than required and check back regularly. You may also post more than the required minimum responses if you choose.
