Task: Use this table to outline your talk/op-ed. Add rows to the table as needed. Keep in mind that we will start drafting the talk/paper after Thanksgiving, so this should be as detailed as possible! If you weren’t in class, review the class sides prior to starting this assignment.
Imperfect Students Examples:
Tentative title of talk/paper:
Remind Yourself TEDx Talk’s purpose
|Anticipated Length (in minutes or words)||Section and purpose
(Introduction, Body, etc.)
|How you’ll address this purpose||Why it’s important to your talk/op-ed|
|Your talk/paper will be 4-6 minutes or about 750 words. Use this column to note a time range (e.g., 1:00-3:00) or the approximate amount of words/sentences you’ll use in this section (e.g. 100 words or 2-3 sentences)||In this column, label the section (Introduction, Body, Conclusion) and the purpose. Each section will have multiple rows. Try to put a point or idea per row. Aim for 5-10 rows. For example, your body likely need to have at least 3 distinct points||In this column, describe how you’ll go about addressing the purpose identified in the previous column. If the point is to draw in your audience, describe how you’ll do that (with a specific anecdote, a specific quote or statistic from a source, etc.).||In this column, explain why this point or idea is important for the presentation/paper. If you can’t think of a good reason to include something, then consider not using it.|
