You may choose any topic that meets this purpose. 2. Your introduction should include a proposition/thesis that asserts some course of action. 3. Use 3-5 reliable sources from books, articles, interviews or Internet. See tests of

evidence on pages 351-352. State approximately 5 verbal citations during your speech. 4. Use one or more persuasive techniques: logos,

logical proof; pathos, emotional proof; and ethos, source credibility. (pp. 353-355). 5. Your introduction should gain attention, include listener relevance, your credentials, and a proposition/thesis. 6. The body of your presentation should follow the organizer handout and the Monroe
