i'm not sure who the audience would be for my speech.
since my pet peeve is my little sister, i guess the audience should be kids htat are my age so they can relate to it
Topic: pet peeve; my little sister
or does it have to be more specific?
general purpose: i guess it could either be inform or entertain. it depends on how i write it
specific purpse: I want to inform (or entertain) an audience of teenagers about how my little sister is my biggest pet peeve.
method of organization: chronological. maybe i could explain how my day goes with her, so then chronological would be the best way to go.
body points; not sure yet
if somebody can check this for me, then i think i better get started on some brainstroming for my body points.
IT might be parents also, depending what the peave is. I would be much more specfic about the peave: non respect for privacy, etc.
