The comments in blue are for explanation purposes only for the outline. They explain the different sections and should not be included in your own outline.

Introduction

I. Attention getter:

(Start all formal presentations with an attention getter. Avoid starting with “hi, my name is….” You can ask the audience a question, offer a quote or a statistic that is relevant to the topic that will get the audience’s attention.)

II. State the topic:

(Tell the audience your topic.)

III. Speaker credibility:

(Tell the audience why you are credible to speak on this topic. Tell them if you have experience with it or if you have conducted research on the topic.)

IV. Thesis Statement:

(The thesis statement is a one-sentence summary of what you plan to cover for the presentation.)

V. Preview:

(State the key ideas in the order you plan to cover them. “Today we will cover Saturn’s composition, the makeup of its rings, and the planet’s moons.”)

Body

I. First key idea ( The main points you want to discuss are called key ideas. Key ideas should be labeled with I, II, III. For a speech four to seven minutes long, you should have at least two key ideas and no more than five key ideas.)

A. ( Supporting details for each of the key ideas are called subpoints. Subpoints should be indented underneath the main key ideas. You can decide how many supporting details you provide for each key idea. You should have at least an A and B. Label them A, B, C, then 1, 2, 3 and then a, b, c. In order for the outline to be balanced, If you have an A, you also need a B. If you have an a, you need a b. If you have a 1, you need a 2.)

B.

<Transition sentence> (Add a transition sentence between the key ideas. The transition sentence should summarize the previous key idea and introduce the next key idea. This lets the audience know where you are within the speech. Example: Now that we’ve gathered the materials for a blood draw, let’s discuss how to prepare the patient for a blood draw.)

Conclusion

(The conclusion is used to summarize what you’ve already discussed and then provide closure for the speech. Do not introduce new or information in the conclusion – it’s for recapping and summarizing only.)

I. (Summarize and recap what you've discussed. If you've demonstrated steps to a process, then restate the steps here. If you offered three reasons or ways to do something, restate those reasons or ways here.)

II. (Provide a strong closure for the speech – concluding statement at the end. Don’t just end the speech abruptly or by saying “thank you for listening.” Have a plan for ending strong! It's the last impression the audience will have of you and your topic.)

· Did you start the speech with an attention getter?

· Does every I have a II, every A have a B, every 1 have a 2 etc.?

· Did you include a thesis statement? (It should be the last sentence in the introduction of the speech because it serves as the preview statement for the speech.)

· Do all the points support the thesis and work toward achieving the specific purpose/goal?

· Did you provide supporting information for all of your key ideas?

· Are the key ideas clearly marked and identified?
