33 DISCUSS: Types of Informative Speeches
Share a topic you recently learned about either by reading, viewing or listening to a speaker. Post what the topic being taught or demonstrated was and identify which Informative Speech Type it was and what pattern of organization was used in teaching about the topic. I’ll go first: In August, I was watching the Olympic coverage of the USA Gymnastics team and viewed a segment on Simone’s life story. This was an Object/Person speech because it focused on an individual’s life story. It was organized chronologically because it started in her early years of being raised by her grandparents, her beginning interest/training in gymnastics and finally, her accomplishments in recent years preparing for Olympics.
