Fundamentals of speech **need asap**


Apply Monroe’s Motivated Sequence to a real-world scenario that  requires persuasion. Describe how each step is essential to the overall  persuasive message


Attention (hook): French philosopher Voltaire was translated by  Evelyn Beatrice Hall as having said: “I do not agree with what you have  to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Need: The Chronicle of Higher Education surveyed Ivy League schools  to find that roughly twenty percent of students would request sanctions  on free speech on campus

Satisfaction: Freedom of speech is a primary right in the United  States because it protects the right to thought and expression, outside  of threats, that should be respected for its insightful approach.

Visualization: Imagine a world where we learn to embrace freedom of  thought through recognition that speech is a conduit to meaningful  understanding about the person speaking, for better or worse.

Action: Even in we disagree, defend freedom of speech for everyone’s sake!
