Speech Analysis


For your initial post, watch the TED Talk “Why Videos Go Viral” by YouTube’s trend manager Kevin Allocca. (http://www.ted.com/talks/kevin_allocca_why_videos_go_viral.html)

After you have watched the video, answer the following questions: 

  1. What is the thesis statement (main point) of the speech?
  2. Is the speech persuasive or informative?  How can you tell?
  3. Does Allocca give a preview his main points?  If so, what are they?
  4. How do the visual aids enhance the speech?
  5. Are his introduction and conclusion effective?  Explain. Hint: See CH 9 in course text
  6. Talk about Allocca’s speech delivery.  What works well?  What would you change?
  7. What are three elements of the speech that you will strive to emulate in your own speeches?  Why did you select these elements?
