Description

Hello,

I need to Prepare an extemporaneous speech that “pays tribute” to a historical person, group of people, institution or event. Your goal is to “create, reinforce or change” your audience’s response to your topic by inspiring them — “to arouse and heighten their appreciation of or admiration for” your selected topic.

I have attached a sample completed outline and a blank outline to type on. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Note: This speech outline was adapted from the text of the sample speech that appears in the Appendix
of the 13th edition of The Art of Public Speaking by Stephen E. Lucas:
Lucas, Stephen E. “Appendix.” The Art of Public Speaking. 13 ed., McGraw-Hill, 2020.
SAMPLE OUTLINE & BIBLIOGRAPHY: TRIBUTE SPEECH
TOPIC: Elie Wiesel
ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERN: Topical
SPECIFIC PURPOSE: To persuade my audience that Elie Wiesel is an inspiration to us all through his
eloquent, fearless and selfless leadership.
I. Introduction
A. Attention Getter: A-7713. His new name, the graffiti stamped on his skin. A-7713, a concentration
camp tattoo. At age fifteen, A-7713 was taken from his home by the Nazis and sent to Auschwitz, one of
the twentieth century’s most potent symbols of evil. Here A-7713 witnessed the deaths of thousands of
human beings, including his mother and younger sister.
B. Relevancy Statement: Somehow, A-7713 survived, and when World War II ended, he put his pain and
grief to work making sure the world did not forget the Holocaust and making sure that another
Holocaust did not take place. Today, the world knows A-7713 as Elie Wiesel, noted speaker and
lecturer, author of more than 40 books, and the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the
Congressional Gold Medal, and the Nobel Peace Prize, among others.
C. Credibility Statement: I first learned about Elie Wiesel in my History of the Holocaust course and
have done additional research on his accomplishments.
D. Central Idea: (thesis + main points) Elie Wiesel is an eloquent, fearless, selfless leader who took the
evils of Auschwitz as motivation to improve the world.
II. Body
A. 1st Main Point: An eloquent leader, Elie Wiesel uses the power of language to confront the problems
of humanity.
1. Compelling prose and honesty
2. Quotation from Night
B. 2nd Main Point: A fearless leader no less than an eloquent one, Elie Wiesel has spent 40 years
battling the evils that continue to plague our planet.
1. Miskito Indians of Nicaragua
2. Apartheid in South Africa
3. Cambodian refugees
4. Those who follow his work
C. 3rd Main Point: A selfless leader as much as an eloquent and fearless one, Elie Wiesel has
consistently put the needs of others before his own.
1. Modest about achievements
2. Quote from Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech
III. Conclusion
A. Relevancy Statement: Today, at 80 years of age, Elie Wiesel continues to fight against the night.
Through all his trials and all his triumphs, the tattoo remains: A-7713, a constant reminder of evil,
injustice, and indifference.
B. Central Idea (thesis + main points): In battling these forces, Elie Wiesel has shown the kind of moral
leadership too often lacking in today’s world — leadership that is eloquent, fearless and selfless.
C. Call for Action: There is no better way to conclude than to quote his own words: “There may be
times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to
protest. . . . What these victims need above all is to know that they are not alone, that we are not
forgetting them, that while their freedom depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on
theirs.”
