Submission:See Recording Instructions below
The purpose of this assignment is to give you experience creating a formal, motivational presentation from planning to delivery. You will gain experience selecting and narrowing a topic, researching a speech, and developing speaking notes and an outline. Although this presentation is persuasive, this assignment will help prepare you to make a successful presentation of most any kind.
A persuasive speech attempts to motivate an audience to change an attitude, belief, or behavior. For this reason, your chosen topic should be appropriate for this purpose.

When Recording your final draft: After recording has started but before you begin your assignment you must verify your identity by holding a valid state- or nationally- issued picture ID to the camera so that it is visible and recognizable to our assessment staff. If you do not do this step you will be asked to resubmit. A driver’s license or passport are preferred.
Submitting for this assignment is an easy three-step process:
You can record and save videos using software on your computer before uploading them to YouTube. The most common computer recording programs are Camera for Windows 8+ and Photo Booth for Mac OS X (a download may be required). You may also use your device manual to look up how to record videos. After saving your video to your computer, please upload it to YouTube.
An alternative approach is recording a video on mobile device (phone or tablet). Please note that this could affect the quality of your video and you will need to download the YouTube app to upload your video.
Using YouTube: YouTube is a free service which allows anyone to post videos online and share them. Please understand that your videos do not need to be public. You may make your video Unlisted as long as you share the link with StraighterLine for evaluation. You should not make your video Private because graders will not be able to view it. Once you have received feedback you can delete your video or make it private, however, good work is always worth sharing (though we do recommend that you edit out any appearance of your ID).
