We have now reached the point where you will need to “exit” from your organization. Please write a letter of resignation to your group. In your responses, show some grace and kindness. Acknowledge contributions, admirable attributes, or just offer kind words for the future to your group members. Writing a resignation letter and acknowledging the contribution of others are often overlooked, yet these elements of communication can leave a lasting impression.
Business News Daily and Forbes provide excellent examples and advice.

7-8 minute speech to persuade using Zoom screen share
Goal:
To construct and deliver a persuasive speech using extemporaneous delivery and appropriately designed visual aids
Course Competencies:
Recognize appropriate techniques for managing communication apprehension.
Construct and deliver a variety of presentations.
Construct and use appropriately designed visual aids.
Locate and effectively incorporate supporting material drawn from a variety of sources.
Organize content in a logical manner according to presentation type.

Demonstrate ethical responsibilities of a speaker.
Adapt presentation message to audience and occasion.
Guidelines:
IMPORTANT NOTE:
This speech must be recorded using a computer with access to Zoom and YouTube. It cannot be completed using a smartphone or tablet.
This speech requires the use of visual aids (e.g, PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Keynote) and the use of Zoom Screen Share.
Overview
There are many digital spaces where persuasive speaking is of value such as asking people for support of a personal initiative on GoFundMe, encouraging volunteer support via an organization’s website, launching a Kickstarter campaign, or advocating for policy change during a video conference. Additionally, learning how to persuade using ethically and effective techniques is a valuable skill as there are many personal and professional endeavors that involve influencing people’s behavior, attitudes, and beliefs.
As explained in the Speech Topic Guide, you will be using the same topic for the persuasive speech as you used for the informative speech. In the informative, you set the stage for your persuasive appeal by educating your audience about your topic. You’ve provided them with the necessary background information. Now, your goal is to ask the audience to do something about what you’ve educated them about (e.g., change of attitude, take an action, etc.). You’re now ready to give a call to action.
How do I prepare?
Read the chapter about persuasive speaking and watch the corresponding lecture video.
Review feedback about your informative speech including comments about your outline, delivery, and visual aid assignments.
Use the Oral Source Citation Guide to prepare all of your citations.
Finalize your speaking notes and visual aids.
Review the Guidelines for Speaking Online video in Canvas.
Review the How to Record a Speech guide located in the navigation menu of our Canvas course. This will provide you with directions about how to record your speech in Zoom.
Review the Speech Recording Checklist in the Guidelines for Speaking Online document located in the navigation menu of our Canvas course. Use the checklist in preparation for the recording.
Review the Zoom Screen Share Guidein the navigation menu of our course.
What are the requirements?
Please use the same topic for the persuasive that you used for the informative.
The speech should include a persuasive appeal. This may mean that you want to reorganize some of your information or it may mean that you can keep the points you had before and add the persuasive appeal to the end of the body of the speech. It all depends on which persuasive strategy and outlining pattern you decide to use.
Following the guidelines given in the Oral Source Citation Guide, please use a minimum of three oral source citations during the speech. If no revisions were needed to the ones that you used previously, you do not need to use new citations. However, please be mindful that you may need to add citations for the persuasive appeal depending on the content you include.
Please use extemporaneous deliverywhich means that you will use speaking notes during the delivery of the speech. You should use key words only—do NOT write out a manuscript. Your speaking notes are based on the outline that you’ve constructed for the speech. While you will be using a visual aid for this speech, you should use separate speaking notes from the slides. The speaking notes are for you and what is on your slides is for the audience. Remember that using any other delivery method will result in a failing grade—including speaking and/or reading from a manuscript.
Following the guidelines given about visual aids, please use an appropriately designed visual aid during the speech. It can be designed in PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Keynote (see the syllabus for information about free access to Microsoft 365 online).
You will use Zoom screen share to display the visual aid. You will need to switch back to speaker view when not referencing the visual aid. The goal is to help you to become comfortable with using the technology and recognizing when you need to be presenting in speaker mode versus showing something on the screen. When using Screen Share, a video of you as well as your visual aid should be on the screen. If you do not see yourself in a thumbnail video next to your visual aid, go to the More option on the toolbar and make sure that Show Video Panel is listed. You should appear in full screen speaker view for the majority of the presentation. This means that you should only plan on showing any one visual aid for no longer than 20 seconds or so. In other words, you should not deliver the entirety of the presentation with you appearing in a small thumbnail video next to your visual aid. More information about how to use Zoom screen share is in the Zoom Screen Share Guide located in the navigation menu of our course.
Our appearance as public speakers can influence our credibility which is why we need to consider how we present ourselves in various contexts such as a speech for an academic purpose. While formal attire is not required, you should make an effort to demonstrate that you recognize that how you present yourself matters for the purposes of delivering your message effectively. See the Guidelines for Speaking Onlinefor more information.
The presentation must start and end with your face showing on the screen. You may sit down for the speech but please ensure that your head and shoulders are clearly viewable within the frame.
Please make sure to adhere to the time frame of 7-8 minutes. You can use a timer on a phone, for example, while you’re practicing the speech. While you’re recording the speech, you can watch the timer in Zoom (or use your phone but make sure to turn off the notifications so you’re not distracted during the speech).
Practice the speech multiple times before recording it. Remember to practice saying it out loud and not just study the speaking notes. Also, remember to incorporate Zoom screen share into your practice sessions.
Use the Speech Recording Checklist in the Guidelines for Speaking Online document to prepare for your final recording for submission.
Remember that the sign of an effective message is not the absence of anxiety but how you manage the anxiety. I’m more interested in how you manage a mistake, technical problem, etc. than the fact that once occurred.
How do I record?
This speech must be recorded using a computer with access to Zoom and YouTube. It cannot be completed using a smartphone or tablet.
See the How to Record a Speech guidein the navigation menu of our Canvas course for directions. Also, remember to reference the Zoom Screen Share guide for help with using the feature during your recording.
What do I submit?
You will submit the unlisted YouTube link to the recording of your speech that you made in Zoom.
You will submit the outline and notes that you used to deliver the speech.
How do I submit it?
You will submit the unlisted YouTube link to your recording and your notes using the Informative Speech assignment link in Canvas. See Step Three in the How to Record and Submit a Speech directions in the navigation menu of our course.
Don’t forget to double-check that your YouTube video is set to unlisted.

Conflict Self-Assessment Paper Learning Objectives At the end of this assignment

Conflict Self-Assessment Paper
Learning Objectives
At the end of this assignment, the students will be able to
1. Articulate the relationship between conflict theories and improving one’s skills
2. Describe how their conflicts move through constructive or destructive cycles
3. Assess their own conflict skills and determine levels of improvement
4. Articulate the changes they would like to make in their future behavior
At the beginning of the semester, you completed a self-assessment (action plan paper) of your conflict
abilities and shortcomings, specified some areas in which you thought you needed improvement, and
generated goals for improvement. Throughout the course of the semester, you have kept track of the
conflicts you experienced, using the conflict worksheet to record them.
Directions: For your Conflict Self-Assessment paper, you will analyze the various conflicts you
experienced this semester and use the information you have created as data for analyzing your
behavior. This paper is to be a personal reflection, coupled with analysis and reference to outside
readings, which demonstrates the growth of your knowledge this semester.
Include clean copies of all your worksheets (refer to action plan directions) submitted this semester. In
the skills assessment section, for example, if your goal was to delay your emotional reactions to others
in conflict, do the conflicts you have analyzed reflect increased ability, or are you still working on this
skill?
Minimum Expectations
At the minimum, you must use and cite the required reading (your text). Minimum means an average, C
grade. The above average or excellent paper makes use of library resources, from a variety of types
(communication yearbooks, journals, and books), as well as accurately and skillfully applying concepts
from classroom discussion. The outstanding (“A”) paper will utilize more than 4 primary library sources.
In order for your paper to be evaluated quickly (particularly since your papers come in at the end of the
semester), YOU MUST divide your paper into sections that address the following issues, label each
section, and follow the indicated order. Within each section, address the issues in essay form.
NOTE: The paper length should not exceed 7 pages, but is required to be a minimum of 5 pages. Page
lengths following Section labels are for 12-point Times New Roman with 1” margins.
Sections Required in the Paper
Section One: Introduction—Thesis and Overview (approximately 1 page)
This section should create reader interest, giving the reader some idea of your attitudes toward conflict
as you began the semester and your attitudes toward conflict today. In addition, it should contain a
thesis statement and a forecasting statement that lets the reader know where you are headed in the
entire paper.
Section Two: Skills Assessment (approximately 1-2 pages)
Were the skills you chose to assess the most pressing ones for you to improve? As you have recorded
your conflicts this semester, have other skills for improvement become apparent? Are you more aware
of the kinds of things you do which aren’t beneficial in conflict situations?
Have your conflict skills actually improved this semester? It’s okay if they haven’t. It may be that this
semester has created a greater awareness of behavior, so that you are thinking more about your conflict
skills. The next step after awareness is improved behavior—don’t worry if you haven’t made giant
behavioral strides. Understanding is the most important.
Are you more aware of the way you typically respond to conflicts? Have you found that conflicts with
some people are more “controllable” than with other people? How do the conflicts from your journal
indicate this awareness? How can you put this awareness to use?
Section Three: Theoretical Connections (approximately 1-2 pages)
How does understanding different types of conflicts and the existence of conflict cycles increase your
understanding of your own behavior?
Do you understand the connection between conflict theories/concepts and skills? Explain your
understanding of the between theories and skills, and indicate which theory of conflict was most useful
for understanding your behavior.
Why is the best theory one that is useful?
Section Four: Analyzing Your Behavior (approximately 1 page)
What has recording your conflicts using the questions provided done for your understanding of conflict
behavior?
How have you been able to implement the S-TLC approach? What are its advantages and
disadvantages?
Section Five: Your Overall Learning (approximately 1 page)
Overall, how far have you come this semester? What has changed? What hasn’t changed?
How do you assess your learning in the class?
How do you see yourself engaging in a lifetime of learning about this issue?
Please, DO NOT SIMPLY ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS IN ORDER TO WRITE YOUR PAPER. You are
writing a position paper, an argument concerning your skills and their improvement during this
class. Within sections, I expect a good thesis sentence, transitions, use of journal entries as data,
etc. I highly recommend thinking about this paper for at least two hours before you write it.

Introduction
Your PowerPoint presentation is due this week. Most of you will have a mic built into your computer, but if you don’t, then you are required to obtain a headset microphone to produce the PowerPoint narration. Headset microphones can be purchased from the bookstore or at any electronics or discount store for between $10-25. When purchasing a headset microphone, consider the ports available on the computer being used and purchase accordingly.
In addition, you should take the time to review the Resources tab for technology guidance so that you will be ready to complete your speech on time. Of course, if you face technical trouble, there is support available.

Instructions
The following are the best practices for creating your speech presentation:
Title Slide: Include the title, audience (who you prepared the presentation for: school or institution), the presenter who prepared and narrated, and the date.
Attention-Getter: Give the audience a reason to pay attention. Make them want to listen to your speech.
Thesis: Clearly state the purpose of your presentation
(On this slide, establish the tone of the presentation and include any questions you think your audience might have about your topic – questions you will answer during your presentation).
Body of the Presentation (multiple slides): Include the information you found during your research and organize it in a visually pleasing manner.
Use some type of division like levels of headers or titles.
Use words and phrases to clarify key points.
Provide researched evidence for each point.
Cite your evidence, quotes, and statistics within your presentation using
in-text citations ( ) on the slides as well as full reference citations on the
last slide.
Include images to add visual appeal to the slides.
Summary and Conclusion: Summarizing is similar to paraphrasing but presents the gist of the material in fewer words than the original. An effective summary identifies the main ideas and major support points from the body of your outline or presentation. Minor details are left out. Summarize the benefits of the ideas and how they affect the thesis statement of the outline and main objective of the presentation. End with a final strong statement regarding the intent of the presentation.
References: Use the APA citation format. The illustrations should be included with your resources. APA tutorials are available in the Chamberlain University library. Keep in mind the following:
At least 4 authoritative, outside scholarly sources are required from Week 6 outline. (Anonymous authors or web pages are not acceptable.)
Appropriate citations within the presentation are required on the last slide. Just copy and paste this from the last page of your outline – the References page. References should be in APA format.
Each resource should be entirely double spaced.
All entries must use hanging indents – the first line is flush left, and all the rest are indented.
All Chamberlain University policies are in effect including the plagiarism policy.
Additional Hints
Use a minimum of 5 visual aids to further clarify and support the written part of your presentation. You could use example graphs, diagrams, photographs, flowcharts, maps, drawings, pictograms, tables, and Gantt charts. If a slide appears boring, then strongly consider adding a visual. It is the blend of text and images that make the slides engaging for the audience.
Animation and video clips should not be used for this speech. YouTube is not allowed.
Do not type out text onto the slide and then read it during your presentation. Remember, you are the teacher, so teach, don’t read!

topic must be related to communications, possibly in a business context. You can choose your own topic or look at the
list below for ideas. If you choose to
focus on one of the general topic areas listed below, then you must make sure
that your paper narrows down the topic
so that it is more specific and concrete.
Feel free to
narrow your focus down to one specific industry or subject area, e.g.
communicating effectively in the accounting industry, tourism industry, fashion
industry, human resources, etc. Clear
your topic with me before you start writing.

Select a topic which advocates involvement with a charitable organization. The topic should relate in some way to issues within communities and/or the environment and be one in which the public can become directly involved. Possible organizations may include, but are not limited to: MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), Wounded Warrior Project, Doctors Without Borders, USA, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Research your topic. You are not simply telling the audience about the organization. Your research should uncover the problems this organization aims to solve, how they are providing solutions, and how individuals can become involved.
Organize the main points of your speech using a Monroe’s Motivated Sequence (Chapter 15).
Provide adequate support for each main point by citing at least three credible sources in the speech. Incorporate examples, narratives, testimonial evidence, statistics, analogies, explanations, and/or definitions where appropriate. Sources must be cited orally in the speech.
Create an introduction and conclusion.
Written Material
Once you have thought through each part of the speech (introduction, body, & conclusion), create a Sentence Outline of your speech (Chapter 12). Your outline should show the full content of your speech and include a list of References in MLA format.
Create speaking notes to use during your delivery. You should not speak from your outline. Use key words and phrases in your speaking notes rather than complete sentences. Your notes should serve only as a memory aid and should not be a word-for-word manuscript of your speech.
