Purpose of assigment: one of the forms of public speaking that we do not do enough of is paying tribute to another human being. There are many occasions in our lives for giving a tribute: family gathering, wedding, graduation, memorial services, retirements and special birthday, to name a few.
This is my speech, I’m going to talk with 3-4 minutes.
1, Create and make evident the occasion for which you are giving this speech.( wedding, funeral, special birthday….)
2, Make it clear,
3, Cite at least one source ( your source may be testimony from a close friends or family member about the person to whom you are paying tribute)
4. Use at least one effective visual aid ( project an image of the person you are paying tribute to, set the scence with props and musict etc…). This speech requires both courage and creativity.
