Module 7 Discussion: Attention-Getters

Step 1: Choose a topic you might like to speak about.

Step 2: Post a specific purpose statement about this topic in the discussion forum.

Step 3: Choose two of your classmates’ speech topics and suggest an attention-getter they might use to start their speech. Consider the 8 types of attention-getters we covered in this module. Should your classmate’s speech start with a rhetorical question?   A startling statistic? Perhaps a current or historical event?
