Sample Speech Outline Template

  1. Introduction
    1. Attention Getter: Your attention getter is the first thing you say in your speech so make it count! You can use a quote, statistic, ask a question, use vivid imagery or a story. Be sure that if you are using information from an outside source it must be orally cited per our class requirements.
    2. Background & Audience Relevance After you have piqued the audience’s attention you want to give them context (background) of what you will be talking about. This should be where you get the audience to see your topic as you do. This might mean that you need to define the terms you’re using, or you show us a picture. Anything that helps us to understand the context of your speech. Then you tell us why this is directly relevant to us. Audience relevance should provide an explanation for why or how we are impacted by this subject.
    3. Speaker Credibility: Here you explain to the audience why you’re credible, not simply that you are. Credibility statements can be as simple as telling us that you were interested in a topic so you did some research. Or it can be more detailed about how you personally experienced this.
    4. Thesis: Your thesis is ONE declarative sentence that tells the audience what we will take away from your speech. This is the overall goal of your speech. Remember this is one sentence. For example, “Today you will all learn…”
    5. Preview of Main Points: Your thesis is followed by a preview of your main points. This is where you tell us, specifically, what three points you will talk about. This should be explicitly clear; “First I will tell you…, then I will talk about…, and finally,…”
