SUBJECT Informative and Persuasive Speech Differences

  Informative and persuasive speeches have both similarities and differences. I agree that both speeches have a point to get across to a specific audience. Informative speeches are meant to educate your audience. My goal is to teach the audience something that they might not know already. My hope is that the audience will leave the speech being able to educate someone else on my topic. I love the illustration that you used for your informative speech. I never thought about it in that way. When I think about giving an informative speech, I think about conducting a class at work for my job. I would have to explain and educate my audience on my specific job duties. Like you said, a persuasive speech’s goal is to persuade a specific opinion or viewpoint on a matter to the audience. I also feel like this type of speech is more difficult to deliver than an informative speech. With an informative speech, it is a lot of facts. However, with a persuasive speech, I feel like more emotion goes into the speech, especially if it is a topic that you are passionate about. The example about the attorney defending her client is a great way to explain a persuasive speech. An attorney’s main job is to persuade a jury that the client is innocent or guilty on a daily basis. Another example of someone that might use persuasive speeches daily for their job would be a salesperson (Lucas, 2015). Their main job is to convince you that the product they are selling is something that you have to have and can not live without. Some of them are very good at their jobs and can persuade even the toughest person to buy the product. Overall, I think we have very similar views on both of these types of speeches.

Thinking Ahead to Your Persuasive Speech


What is a topic you have in mind for your upcoming Persuasive Speech? Explain the organizational pattern you will use, potential main points that would support your goal of persuading the audience.

The topic I decided to choose for this week assignement is about the homeless and how we can help make changes. I choose this topic because I personality knew a family who were homeless. They were hard workers and made a move with friends who used them and then just left them hanging and allow them to live in the streets with three kids. I will explain what the estimated amount of people that are homeless.Did you know that there are over 564,708 people who are homeless and out of that number 206,286 are families. I say estimated because not everyone goes to try and get help. will also explain that it can happen to anyone at any given time,That there are many ways that you can become homeless some are substance abuse, divorce, evictions, fires, natural disasters (floods, hurricanes, tornadoes) these are just a small amount of things that could casue for someone to become homeless. Then I will tell you about the orginazations you can contact for help or even volunteer at, and what all types of help that can offered. Most communities have Salvation Army, or churches in they community that helps in some type of way. To end my speech I will explain to you why it is so imporant to help others less forturante and how it can make you feel by doing so. Also you can get your family involved and set great values in your children at the same time,
