Persuasive Speeches

Persuasive Speeches
Way one
A persuasive speech can be organized in a number of ways. The most common way to
organize a persuasive speech outline is by "statement of logical reasons".
In this speech you introduce the topic and state the thesis in the introduction, put the reasons
and supporting material in the body, and a call to action in the conclusion. For example, if
you were trying to persuade your audience to donate blood at American Red Cross Blood
Drives your outline might look something like this:
Thesis: People should give blood because it is easy and though there might be a little pain
involved it is worth it because it saves so many lives and you get great snacks.
