Length: Minimum 6-8 full pages speech: https://youtu.be/WZyRbnpGyzQ Format: Ty

Length: Minimum 6-8 full pages
speech: https://youtu.be/WZyRbnpGyzQ
Format: Typed, Double-Spaced, Times New Roman 12-point font, Reference page in APA citation format. Your name, my name, and the date should be typed (single spaced) in the top left hand corner. The paper should have a title, centered, underneath.

Instructions:

This assignment enables you to apply your critical skills to a famous speech ( the speech is located at the top). Select a famous speech you will watch and analyze using the public speaking skills you have learned throughout the semester. The speech you choose should be long enough to write a 6-8 page paper. It should be a speech you can watch visually (rather than listen to or read). Americanrhetoric.com is a good resource for finding speeches. The speech you choose cannot be “I Have a Dream.”

Your analysis should discuss four things: context of the speech, the audience of the speech, the linguistic choices of the speech, and the delivery of the speech.

In terms of context, explain the historical context in which the speech was given. Tell me why the speech was necessary in that particular time, that particular place, and that particular occasion. Tell me how the context shaped what the speaker said in the speech. Support your claims with cited research that includes in-text citation and a reference page.

In terms of audience, tell me about the demographic and psychographic characteristics of the audience. Tell me how the characteristics of the audience shaped the choices of the speaker. Support your claims with cited evidence: give me research that talks about what the make-up of the audience was, what they care about, what they were feeling when the speech was given, how well the speech was received, etc.

In terms of linguistic choices, discuss the words of the speech. Draw from what the speech actually says. Does the speaker use alliteration, metaphor, imagery, anaphora, allusion, etc.? How does that contribute to the speech? How does the speaker organize the speech? Why does the speaker make those particular choices?

In terms of delivery, discuss how the speaker sounds and presents her/himself to the audience. Is the delivery strong and passionate? Fast or slow? Does it change throughout the speech? How does the delivery affect the credibility of the speaker?

Given all that information, discuss the effectiveness of the speech. What did you/did you not like about the speech?

This is a research-based essay. I expect to see lots of quality sources cited in the essay. A big part of your grade will come from the quality and frequency of your source citations.

Crisis Press Release As the PR professional, it is your role to craft a press

Crisis Press Release

As the PR professional, it is your role to craft a press release to inform and update your publics about a crisis situation as part of the crisis communication plan.

Details/Content = 75 points

For this task, you will create a fictitious crisis about which you must inform your publics. Be sure you create a fictitious crisis for this task to earn credit (this can be unrealistic/creative). The content must demonstrate an understanding of a communication crisis situation (not all problems are a crisis with the potential to affect a brand – read/view the module carefully to learn about the conditions of a communication crisis). Zero points will be earned if the crisis does not fit the considerations of this module. = 10 points
The stage of the crisis about which you are writing is also your choice. It can be a new situation, mid-crisis update or a follow-up about the resolution of the situation. Be sure this is clear in the release. = 10 points
The publics have an interest in your brand. Your goal is to maintain their loyalty, manage attribution theory, and demonstrate empathy. = 10 points
Include one key message which is typically related to the crisis to maintain brand reputation. (see examples in the module, text and online) = 10 points
Address the basic questions: who, what, where, when, how and why (why may depend upon what stage of the crisis this release addresses) = 25 points
Be sure to include at least two (2) appropriate quotes from brand executives. = 10 points
Format = 25 points

Use an appropriate press/media release format. *There are many examples online and in the text.
Content should reflect the inverted pyramid style of writing.
Create a letterhead (company name, address, phone, email – use yourself as the contact person/PR Director)
Include your fictitious company branding elements within the letterhead.
Proper spacing, spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure is a must.
Proofread carefully!
Be pithy! (Look it up.)

What experiences have you had, if any, with training or education on workplace diversity?

Unconscious bias affects how individuals communicate in the workplace and impacts an organization’s culture. Read the following article from Forbes Magazine (Berger, 2018), which outlines the impact unconscious bias has in the workplace:
Berger, L. (2018). Unconscious bias in the workplace: You can’t afford to ignore it. Links to an external site.Forbes. https://www.forbes.com/
Reflect on how your company’s (or a previous company’s) training does or does not educate employees about unconscious bias. Can cultural diversity be fostered in the workplace through employee education and training? What experiences have you had, if any, with training or education on workplace diversity?

Choosing a problem is primarily about deciding at what level of analysis provides you the best avenue of solvency.

The goal of this paper (3-4 PAGES) is for you to identify a societal problem, its systemic and interpersonal causes, the impacts this problem has on people/society and identify solvency mechanisms at both the individual and institutional level (university, company, city, state, federal). Choosing a problem is primarily about deciding at what level of analysis provides you the best avenue of solvency.
For example if your social issue is climate change is destroying the environment: the causal mechanism might be organizations/corporations/individuals using energy from nonrenewable resources, and producing goods that are not easily recyclable or reusable.
The impacts might be environmental degradation (impacts to water, air, landfill size, etc), how these impacts affect primarily lower income folks, and the ways in which climate change is disrupting markets and economic systems (climate migration, supply chain issues).
The solvency mechanisms might be implemented at the organizational (ISU), municipal (BloNo), state (IL), or federal level of solvency. Suggestions like, switching to renewable food containers or shifting more of a municipalities energy production to renewables like wind. There would ideally also be an individualized level of solvency: voting for climate conscious candidates, donating money to environmental non-profits, or changing your consumer behaviors in ways that are more sustainable.
You should address the 5 stock issues mentioned in the textbook (need, workability, practicality, freedom from greater evils, and superiority relative to other possible solutions). You will be graded on how well you identify the societal problem (Need). You will also be graded on how effectively you argue that your solvency mechanisms would alleviate the societal problem (Freedom from greater evils & Superiority relative to other possible solutions) AND addressing what might prevent the policy from working/being adopted (Workability & Practicality).
