For our Persuasion class, we had to write speeches. We spent a lot of time looking at techniques and famous persuasive speakers such as Martin Luther King Jr., Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Then it was our turn. In one of my blog posts, I have a copy of my 3 minute Bus Etiquette Speech that I wrote earlier this term. With the next speech needing to be 7 minutes long, I had to find a more in depth topic.

I chose to focus my final speech on Online Activism and how it is viewed as “Slacktivism”.

Here is a link to the PDF of the speech:
