Find a Change the World speech that resonates with you. An example (which should not be used) is Emma Watson’s HeforShe speech at the UN Women’s conference in 2014. You may also search for speeches on americanrhetoric.com, TED Talks, or google “best recent speeches” for inspiration
First, in a short introductory typed paragraph, provide a description of your chosen “Change the World” speech you plan to critique. Please use a speech from the last 20 years, from 2000 -2020. Who is speaking? What is the occasion, and where and when is this taking place? Why is this speech important enough that it qualifies as a potential “world-changing” speech? What’s the main issue at the center of this presentation?
Next, you will need to do two things:
- Put a link to the video of the speech if you can find it online. If for any reason there is not a video, please attach a link to the transcript from the speech; however, please TRY to find a speech with a video. If your speech is longer than 10 minutes (and many addresses of this sort are), focus on a 10 minute segment. if you provide a link to the entire speech, be sure to mention which ten minutes you are focusing on.
- For the next part of the assignment, write a 2 page typed reflection and critique of the speech, focusing on the content, tone, and delivery, as well as the most memorable aspects of the speech. Be sure to mention Logos, Pathos, and Ethos from the Lesson. Include why you chose that speech and the effect it has had on you and the world. Submit to Canvas at the end of the week, by Sunday February 9th.
