Your outline must contain the following: Outline the Introduction, Body, and Conclusion as separate sections. Looking at the sample outline will help you see how this looks. Make sure your outline also has all the sections mentioned below. See the sample outline to see how the outline should look. 1. At the top of the outline, give: –Your Name — Specific purpose: Thesis Statement: 2.  The Introduction should have at least 3 sections: Attention Statement (a story, interesting fact, or statistic to grab the audience’s attention) Credibility Statement (why you are qualified to discuss this topic) Preview of ALL main points (tell the audience all the main areas you will cover in the speech) 3. The Body should have 3-5 main points indicated by Roman numerals written as complete sentences that statements of fact and supported by at least two subpoints from your research. (subpoints are represented by capital letters — A.B.C., etc.) See the sample outline to see how the Body of the outline should be set up. For the Biographical speech, your main points should be used in Chronological Order — from the person’s birth to present or to their death. 4. The Conclusion should have two sections: Summary of all your main points — repeat your main points Closing Statement (a sentence that ties the speech together, wraps up your topic, or gives a sense of closure) 7. At the end of your outline, you should put a complete Bibliography citing the sources used in the speech using MLA format, so I can judge what type of sources were used. There is a guide for MLA citations under this link. **  Two resources are required  and must be sources that are NOT from the Internet, such as actual books, magazines, or newspapers, or articles from the online databases located on the Hinds library’s lrc.hindscc.edu database collection such as EBSCOhost, Wilson Biographies or MELO articles. *You can add Internet sources only after you have found your two that are not from the Internet. If you add website, use credible ones — avoid social media sites, Wikipedia, and fan-created websites. ** You MUST use MLA format for your bibliography to cite your sources.

Please note that the specific content of the outline will vary depending on the topic of the speech. The outline provided above serves as a general template that can be modified accordingly.

Introduction
The introduction section of the speech outline is crucial as it sets the stage for the rest of the presentation. It should engage the audience and provide them with a clear understanding of the purpose and direction of the speech.

A. Attention Statement
The attention statement should grab the audience’s attention and make them interested in listening to the speech. This can be achieved through the use of a story, interesting fact, or compelling statistic. The attention statement should be relevant to the topic and create curiosity among the audience.

B. Credibility Statement
The credibility statement is an opportunity for the speaker to establish their authority and expertise on the topic. It should briefly highlight the qualifications or experiences that make the speaker qualified to discuss the subject matter. This helps to build trust and credibility with the audience.

C. Preview of Main Points
In this section, the speaker provides an overview of the main areas that will be covered in the speech. It serves as a roadmap for the audience and helps them understand the structure of the presentation. The preview of main points should be concise and provide a clear outline of what will be discussed.

Body
The body of the speech outline should contain the main points of the presentation. These main points should be supported by subpoints that are backed by research, evidence, or examples. The order of the main points can vary depending on the topic. For a biographical speech, it is often effective to follow a chronological order.

A. Main Point 1
This section focuses on the first main point of the speech. It should be written as a complete sentence that states a fact or argument related to the topic. The main point should be supported by at least two subpoints, represented by capital letters (A, B, C, etc.). These subpoints further elaborate on the main point and provide evidence or examples to support it.

B. Main Point 2
The second main point of the speech is presented in this section. Similar to the previous section, it should be written as a complete sentence and supported by subpoints. The subpoints should provide additional details, evidence, or examples to strengthen the main point.

C. Main Point 3
This section focuses on the third main point of the speech. It follows the same format as the previous sections and should provide a clear and concise statement followed by supporting subpoints.

Conclusion
The conclusion section of the speech outline serves to summarize the main points discussed in the body of the presentation. It should remind the audience of the key takeaways and reinforce the significance of the topic.

A. Summary of Main Points
In this section, the speaker briefly summarizes the main points discussed in the body of the speech. It should be a concise recap to remind the audience of the key information presented.

B. Closing Statement
The closing statement is the final sentence or phrase of the speech that ties everything together. It should provide closure and leave a lasting impression on the audience. The closing statement can be thought-provoking, inspiring, or a call to action.

Bibliography
The bibliography section of the outline is where the speaker lists all the sources used in the speech. It should follow the MLA format and include information such as author, title of the source, publication date, and relevant page numbers. At least two sources are required for the speech, and internet sources should only be added after finding two non-internet sources. Credible sources should be used, avoiding social media sites, Wikipedia, and fan-created websites.
