Answer & Explanation:1. Speech Written
Assignment: Final Outline, Description of Visuals, and References
2. From the speech written assignment, I need
this, creating a PowerPoint Presentation Audio Recording Using the Narration
Feature (you can provide me audio narration of each slide in word file )The tasks associated with the presentation are
an outline, reference page, and PowerPoint presentation with visual aids.
From a task perspective, you will need to
identify a topic and have it approved by your instructor. Consider how you
might adapt your presentation to your audience when preparing your
Next, begin your research and consider how you
will narrow your topic by creating a general goal, and then a specific goal
that will meet the needs of your audience. Then establish an effective thesis
statement that must be written as a complete sentence. Once you know where your
speech is headed, outline the body of your speech. Then add a strong
introduction and conclusion. Create visual aids that will enhance the
audience’s understanding of your material or that will make your presentation
more memorable. Determine how you will transition between main ideas and
slides. Finally, practice and deliver your presentation.
Let’s recap what is involved in this speech
project. You will need to select a topic and have it approved by your
instructor. Then you will do research and create a rough draft of the speech
outline for yourself. Be sure to spend enough time polishing up the final
version of your outline for your speech.
Be sure to include the information you found
during your research and investigation in the body of your outline, and
organize it in a visually pleasing manner. Break out each main idea you will
use in the body of your outline and presentation. Show some type of division
like levels of headers or titles and then separate sections that are labeled
and indented for the outline; state the main idea, state major subpoints in
each main idea, and provide evidence for each subpoint. Cite your evidence,
quotes, and statistics using APA format.
Finally, you will create a PowerPoint
presentation and record your speech with the PowerPoint narration feature. Your
narrated PowerPoint presentation is due by the end of Week 6.
Each student is required toobtain a headset
microphone. In addition, all students should take the time to review the
PowerPoint narration tutorials in the iConnect Resources under Course Home so
they will be ready to complete their speech on time. Of course, if you face
technical trouble, there is support available.
It will be necessary for
all students to have a headset microphone to use iConnect PowerPoint narration.
This will be the only additional equipment necessary to be successful in the
course. Headset microphones can be purchased at any electronics or discount
store for between $12–25 or even less. When purchasing a headset microphone,
students should consider the ports available on the computer being used and
purchase accordingly.

Assignment 1: Outline

Outlines must be six to seven pages in length
(this would be roughly one to two pages per area included in the outline),
10-point font, double spaced, including these five sections:
Title Page (title of speech, name of presenter,
audience prepared for – school or institution, date): You can use this
information to create your first slide in PowerPoint.
Table of Contents: Include final outline
(general goal, specific goal, thesis statement sentence, introduction
paragraph, full sentence outline), conclusion paragraph, description of visuals
(images for PowerPoint), and APA references.
General goal, specific goal, thesis statement,
introduction paragraph, body of the outline in sentence format (one to two
Summary or conclusion paragraph (one to two
Visuals description plan – images for the
PowerPoint slides, by slide number if known (one to two pages)
Four or more authoritative, outside references
are required (anonymous authors or web pages are not acceptable). References
must be written in APA format with hanging indents, in alphabetical order, and
with everything double spaced. The word references should not
be formatted. Include copyrighted image resources in this list. See the APA
tutorial in the Syllabus. Call a DeVry librarian for help with APA formatting.
You can copy and paste this to use as the last slide in your PowerPoint.
NOTE: Do not copy and paste your table of
contents, final outline, or visuals description plan into your PowerPoint
slides! Your speech slides must be created as a meaningful presentation. Use a
few bullets for each slide with one phrase or one sentence for each bullet. Do
not put any paragraphs into the slides.
Any questions about this
assignment may be discussed in the weekly Q & A Discussion topic.

Assignment 2: Speech

Creating a PowerPoint Presentation Audio Recording
Using the Narration Feature
You are required to deliver a graded oral
presentation for this course. You will deliver your presentation to your
audience through use of the audio narration feature built into Microsoft
PowerPoint. You need a microphone and computer speakers to make the recording.
Creating the PowerPoint Audio Recording
Follow these steps to create and record your
PowerPoint audio presentation.
Open MS PowerPoint;
create your PowerPoint slides and then save them.
Go to the Slide
Show tab located in the top menu.

Make sure that you have
your microphone correctly set up before continuing to the next step. Tip:Set the volume control as high as it can go.
Click on the
“Record Narration” option.
A pop-up window will
appear. The default settings in this window are sufficient so click on
“OK” to continue.

Note: If you click on
“Set Microphone Level” and get an error message, please review the
microphone section under the Resources area located at the bottom of this page.
The PowerPoint slideshow
will start automatically. Just speak into your microphone to record your audio.

Note: To avoid sound
loss, do not talk during slide transitions. Each slide is recorded separately.
When you finish the
presentation, a dialog box will appear asking if you want to save the slide
timing: Click on “Save” to save the timing, along with your audio.
Remember to save your
PowerPoint file as a standard .pptx file before continuing to the next step.
Next, save your
PowerPoint again, this time as a “PowerPoint Show” (.pps) or (.ppsx)
file. This is different than saving a standard PowerPoint file, because a
PowerPoint Show is the output or slideshow rather than the full file.

Click on the Office
button in the upper left-hand menu of PowerPoint.

Choose “Save
As” –> “PowerPoint Show.”

Week 5 Grading Rubric: Speech Outline
The thesis/controlling idea is clearly stated. It is ONE complete
sentence and reflects the topic and purpose of the presentation.
The outline follows the traditional format and conventions of
outlining described in the text. Each Roman Numeral is a point
of the thesis/controlling idea. Capital letters develop the points
of each Roman Numeral. Numbers develop the points of each
capital letter. (It is also acceptable to make the Introduction and
Conclusion separate parts of the Roman Numerals.) Transitions
are also used between main points.
Main points of the speech are amply supported by specific
research. Research is of sufficient variety (statistics, examples,
comparisons, quotations, etc.). The outline is written in detail,
whether it uses complete sentences or phrases. It includes all
points of the speech.
Description of
Visual Aids
A description of how the visuals (images in the PowerPoint
slides) enhance the presentation should follow the outline. The
student(s) should consider how the visual helps the audience
understand the concepts developed in the speech.
Using APA format, include all references used to support your
presentation. References go on a page by themselves and appear
in alphabetical order with hanging indents.

Sample Assignment that would receive FULL credit:
Nursing and communicating with all kinds of people
Topic: Cross-cultural communication Skills
General Purpose: To inform the audience
Specific Purpose: Inform the audience on why cross-cultural communication skills are important in nursing.
I. Introduction: In the nursing profession there are many things that must be taken into consideration. One
of the most important tasks you will be faced with is communicating with and treating diverse
patients. From language barriers and religious beliefs to ensuring the safety of all involved. Many
decisions must be made. As a nurse, your goal is to treat a patient and ensure their health and safety
as well. This cannot be done if the nurse is lacking the communication skills it takes to accommodate
the patients while still doing their job. Strong cross-cultural communication skills are vital in today’s
nursing profession.
A. Attention getter: Imagine that you live in the United States but only speak Spanish. You have
been injured in a car wreck. Emergency services arrive to transport you to the hospital. You’re
loaded into the ambulance all the while being asked questions you cannot understand. The
paramedic speaks only English. You are scared and in pain, panicking because you don’t know if
your needs will be met. The Paramedic appears increasingly worried. It becomes apparent that
the language barrier may prevent you from getting the quickest and most efficient medical care.
In fact, it may even mean the difference between life and death.
B. Thesis: “Strong cross-cultural communication skills are vital in today’s Nursing profession.”
Transition: One primary reason for the need of strong communication skills is due to the variety of cultures in
America today.
II. Large number of cultures in today’s society
A. Number of immigrants (L. Po, 2011)
1. Language barriers (U.S Censes Bureau, 2009)
a. Not enough translators for each language
b. Lack of common language is a concern in all aspects of care giving
B. Many immigrants have no health care (Mazie Davis, 2011)
Transition: Another concern with the large number of immigrants coming to and in the U.S is the variety of new
religions. There were over 50 religious affiliations in the United States, according to the U.S Census Bureau, in
III. Broad religious diversity in today’s society (U.S Census Bureau, 2009)
A. Some religions have specific guidelines for medical care
1. Buddhist monks can only be touched by other Buddhist monks
2. Americans Indians may want a Shaman, medicine man, or faith healer present
3. Certain religions see pain as a test of their faith
(Willner Hank, Narayan Mary, Doka Kenneth, Carlson Jennifer, 2011)
B. Some religions that have specific attire requirements
1. Muslim women must wear head covering
2. Some Jewish groups must wear yarmulkes
IV. Conclusion
A. With the variety of cultures, the number of immigrants, and the myriad religions present in
today’s America, the field of nursing requires strong cross-cultural communication skills. The
large number of people immigrating to the United States bring with them diverse language,
religion, and health care needs. It is these concerns and many others that nurses today must
recognize and adapt to.
B. With American’s current unprecedented diversity, it is imminent that the field of health care
keeps pace with the needs of all.

I will be using a few animations to add color and life to my presentation. These include a simple picture of a
nurse, a picture of a group of different races, etc. I will be using a little chart in one of my slides to show that
cross-cultural communication skills are actually one of the star points in nursing. That is all I have come up
Slide 1: Title page with a picture that correlates with my speech. This is important because the audience needs
to see my title and it gives me a place to begin.
Slide 2: Here is where I will introduce my attention getter. I will ask a basic question on the slide to segue into
my story. This is important so it gives me a chance to transition from my title and topic into the attention getter,
and then slides.
Slide 3: Main point 1 (I)…This will have the main point along with a animation, to help tie to two together. The
picture is of people of all different colors holding hands.
This is important because it shows the audience what I am going to talk about without taking away from the
Slide 4: Here I will introduce and discuss sub points of main point one. This includes point A,B as well as 1 and
2. There will be picture showing a variety of languages. Shows the audience what topic I’m on without
Slide 4: This will be my next main point (II). The picture is of people of all different colors holding hands. This
is important because it shows the audience what I am going to talk about without taking away from the
presentation. This helps with my transition to the next topic
Slide 5: will be the sub points A,1,2,3 and B,1,2. This gives me a chance to separate the information so not to
overload the audience.
Slide 6: will be my last main point (III) here there will be a picture that shows religion. This will again give me
a transition and show them the next topic.
Slide 7: This slide will be some type of Q’s or statement. This slide will be my concluding slide and where I
will wrap up my presentation.
Outline and Speech Presentation with Narration Overview
Presenting information in a clear, concise manner, while keeping the audience
interested, is one of the more common speaking situations you may face in a
professional setting. Often, while you may be the resident “expert” on a topic, you
will find that in order to effectively inform a group on a particular subject you may
need to do a significant amount of research to support your claims. In other
instances, you may be asked to perform research on a topic that you are unfamiliar
with and to present to a group the information that you have gathered. In either
case, this is called speaking to inform. At other times, you may have to persuade
others to believe your point of view or accept your solution to a problem. This is
called speaking to persuade.
Assignment: Prepare an informative or persuasive speech utilizing the speech
pattern of your choice.
Parameters: Speech must be related to workplace communication, relevant to
this audience and approved by the instructor. Brainstorm and/or look in your text
for ideas.
Some general topic ideas include (you are not limited to these):

Virtual team communication
Developing cross-cultural communication skills
Managing conflict in the workplace
Conducting employee performance appraisals
Developing a high performance team through effective communication
Organizational communication – communication flow in the workplace
Using effective communication to facilitate change management

You must use PowerPoint with your speech recorded using the Narration feature
and include in the presentation a minimum of five slides. PowerPoint documents
will be graded as part of the speech.
Time: The full presentation should fall within the time constraints of 5-7 minutes.
Outline and References: An outline is required. Main points should be full
sentences, first level subpoints may be full sentences or phrases, second and third
level subpoints may be phrases or key words. The outline should include a speech
title, general purpose, specific purpose, thesis statement, introduction, body and
conclusion. Please see the sample outline in the Doc Sharing for details.
Using APA format, create a reference page documenting a minimum of four sources
and all materials that are not considered “common knowledge” or “public domain.”
Please review the policy under Course Home that discusses plagiarism so that you
can be sure to avoid it. As a general rule, when in doubt, cite the source.
Per the sample outline in the Doc Sharing, a description of visuals is required as
well. See the sample outline for details.
The outline, references and description of visuals should be submitted in one
document to the dropbox.
Evaluation: 220 points; 100 points allocated to the outline. 60 points allocated to
the speech delivery and 60 points allocated to the PowerPoint.
5A. Covert Rehearsal is an effective way of trying out new communication
behaviors. Think about a time that you were daydreaming, or dreaming at night. You
can use your imagination to think about an experience or situation that is not really
happening at that time or in that place. You can do the same type of simulation on
purpose to think about a time and place that will allow you to practice your new
interpersonal communication skill to meet your goal as outlined in your new behaviors
listed in CCC Part 4E.
Choose one or more behaviors to work on that are listed in CCC Part 4E. Choose
a communication event that you would like to prepare for privately or secretly – covertly.
As you imagine yourself practicing your new skill, focus hard on specific interactions.
Actually think about an interpersonal communication exchange – what you say, and
how the other person responds. Don’t just go through the motions. Really see yourself
asking specific questions, making specific comments, and hearing the other person
replying. As you imagine the sequence, practice precisely what you want to say and
how you want to say it. Experiment with what feels to be the most effective and
comfortable way for you to implement your new behaviors.
By covertly rehearsing, you make it much more likely that you will be actually performing
the behavior comfortably and effectively in real life situations. This surprising effect of
covert rehearsal has been shown in numerous studies. What makes covert rehearsal
particularly useful is that you can carry it around and do it anywhere – in the shower,
driving to work, scrubbing the floor, and so forth. The more you vary covertly rehearsing
a particular episode, the more likely you will be able to perform well in the actual
situation. For example, if you are planning to initiate and maintain a conversation with
your neighbor, you should think through a number of possible topics and questions
before finally choosing what you perceive to be the best options. In other words, think
before you speak. Plan what you will say and do in a particular situation where you can
practice your goal.
Covert rehearsal can be used both to prepare for an upcoming communication event,
and to evaluate and revise an event that has already occurred – as in instant replay.
This is done all the time for sports teams. Each player watches the game again and
decides how he or she could do it better next time. Both planning ahead before a
conversation and reflecting after a conversation will increase the probability that you will
perform your new skill effectively the next time you use it.
Note that some people initially find it difficult to imagine specific conversations with
others. Keep with it if you have difficulty. You will eventually succeed with practice, and
when you do, you will be amazed at the effect. If you are having a hard time talking to
people in your mind, speak to yourself out loud or speak to your reflection in the mirror.
Decide what situation you would like to practice; do you want to plan a new
conversation, or replay a past situation but change the outcome? Where will you have
this conversation – in the kitchen, on the bus, in the cafeteria at lunch, at school in a
classroom, in the board room, in your manager’s office, or at a friend’s house?
Provide a detailed narrative that identifies your selected communication event. Write a
description of your surroundings – date, time, location, specific room, physical
surroundings and so forth, and the people who will participate in this communication
event. Name the people involved, what you will talk about, where it takes place, when it
takes place, how it should occur, and why you need to plan for a better conversation
next time. How will your physical surroundings affect your rehearsal?
5B. Covert Practice: In a quiet place, begin thinking about the conversation event from
Part 5A, as you’d like to see it evolve. Plan and write down your nonverbal and
verbal behaviors and responses, including your own behaviors and responses
and the reactions of the other person in the communication event.
When you hit rough spots, try a variety of options until you find a response that pleases
you. If you are having trouble with this, pretend you are an author planning to write the
dialogue for a reality TV episode, or you are composing lines for characters in a play or
movie or book. Use the mirror technique and take turns roleplaying both people in the
conversation. You can also use puppets, stuffed animals, socks on your hands, or
different hats or coats to take the parts of two people having a conversation.
What can you see in the background? The scenery department needs to know how to
create the setting for the play, movie, or reality TV show. The illustrator needs to know
what to draw or paint for the book you are writing. You need to know exactly what type
of situation you are dealing with before you can write the dialogue for the characters.
When you’re satisfied with your imagined scene, write it out so you can see how
it looks and read it aloud so you can hear how it sounds.
If you are writing a one-act play, you can plan and add stage directions.
Enter left: The wife enters the kitchen to angrily scream at the dawdling children who
won’t eat their supper.
Then write her exact words down so your actor will know what to do and say. Identify
each speaker and use quotation marks for their exact words.
Wife, using a loud and angry voice: “Aren’t you children finished eating your supper
5C. Reflect on this experience. Write a paragraph or two to address your
observations and reactions to the private covert rehearsal experience. How did
you feel at first as you prepared for your private covert rehearsal? How did you
feel after you finished it? What behaviors or patterns did you use from Part 4E?
Did you notice any new behaviors or patterns that you have not noted
Deliverables (Due this week)
Report for CCC Part 5
Include in Part 5 of your report the following items:
5A. In this section, you are to select a communication event, related to your goal, for
which you will prepare covertly. Choose one or more behaviors to work on that are
listed in CCC Part 4E. Provide a detailed narrative that identifies your selected
communication event. Write a description of your surroundings – date, time, location,
specific room, physical surroundings and so forth, and the people who will participate in
this communication event. Name the people involved, what you will talk about, where it
takes place, when it takes place, how it should occur, and why you need to plan for a
better conversation next time. How will your physical surroundings affect your

your new behavior by roleplaying with a family member or
close friend who is NOT directly involved in your goal
Understanding Part 6
In Part 6, you will take your rehearsal a step further by role-playing with someone who is
willing to lend you a hand. Practicing implementation of the new behaviors you identified
in 4E will give you insight into how another person might react in a real-life situation,
preparing you to respond or adapt when necessary.
