Narrative

Guidelines for Narrative Speech – Speech 2
We live in a narrative society. We are surrounded by stories. Storytelling is an art form that can greatly enhance a speech. Stories draw people in. Stories help people to identify with feelings, characters, actions, experiences. A good story can be told and reused throughout the speech. For this class, narrative speeches come in two forms: forensic and storytelling, they both require a chronological order, a cast of characters, a plot [motivation] movement through time, a beginning middle and end.
I, Forensic Storytelling Speeches
A. A forensic speech is one that seeks truth. It deals with material from the past and tries to determine, with the greatest accuracy the following; what happened, why it happened and what impact it has. Forensic speeches are found in courtrooms, boards of inquiry, airplane crash reviews, parents trying to determine which child started the fight and financial audits. Forensic speeches rely primarily on two factors: the presentation of evidence in a clear manner and linking the evidence to the central claim that is made.
B. You have a variety of choices of topics for this. Below you will find some previous topics for these speeches. They can deal with topics of matters dealt with in public [trials inquiries, political reviews…] or topics that are more individual in nature [family matters, sport awards, class grades…]. remember this is a classroom setting. The materiel must be appropriate for the class. Detailed explanations of the crime and the gruesome reality should be avoided. Not everyone is a fan of the blood and guts heinous crime descriptions. if it gets too gruesome i will stop you.
C. Public
Marilyn Monroe did not commit suicide
OJ killed his ex wife
Sacco and Vanzetti were framed
President Clinton should have been impeached
Barry Bonds [or Lance Armstrong] is innocent of steroid use.
The judge was biased in my speeding trial which is why I was convicted
D. Individual
Moving to Florida negatively changed my life forever
The birth of my younger sister ruined my life
I should have gotten an “A” in World History in High School.
I did not run the stop sign that I was given a ticket for.
II. Storytelling Speeches
A. Storytelling speeches are speeches that center on one central story or a series of stories. The stories must clearly support the purpose of the speech. It is the burden of the speech maker to connect the story to the speech purpose. Stories are found in every kind of speech but storytelling speeches are often used for emotional appeal, entertainment, support of a claim, emphasis…..
B. The key is that the story works without lengthy explanation. Think of a joke that has to be explained in detail before someone “gets it”. Likewise a story that needs lengthy explanation is not one that works well for the speech. The key to multiple stories in a speech are that they each highlight different aspects of the main purpose. Some examples are found below.
– See the Three Little Pigs story list in the discussion forum for this week.
– One story for each part of the central purpose – highlighting the effects of hard work centering on school, home and romance.
– For the theme of keeping the right perspective use the story of San Diego Padres pitcher Dave Dravecky who had his arm amputated because of cancer and used his misfortune to become a motivational speaker.
– See some of the suggestions on the story of hiking and the bear in class
– The theme of the consequences of little changes highlighted by the 3 stories of a cockroach that nearly caused a nuclear meltdown at a power plant, one little boy’s comment that changed a nation from the fable, the Emperor’s New Clothes, and the story of but for the sake of a nail…. The war was lost.
