Persuasive speaking is about achieving a specific outcome. It is aimed at getting an audience to take certain action. But to succeed, you must first either change their attitudes and beliefs or reinforce attitudes and beliefs they already hold. You begin by planning and preparing and by focusing clearly on the outcome you want to achieve and the means to achieve it. This course is designed to help students build the skills necessary to achieve these results. Students will be asked to present weekly, under different circumstances and to different audiences.
