  1. Odd question, I am wondering if you have ever read an essay and asked for whom it was written, it's purpose, and did the author approach it correctly.

    Read these and ask those questions:

    http://libertyonline.hypermall.com/henry-liberty.html

    http://grammar.about.com/od/classicessays/a/dreamspeech.htm

    Those ought to give you some great insight to how to write to a specific audience, with purpose, and vivid content.

  2. Joe,
    The most important thing you need to do is decide on who you want to reach with your subject. This will be the pivotal thing that can pull everything together. Once you do that, chose your subject. Once you do that decide what kind of tone will be appropriate for the audience you have chosen. Is it all for teens, adults, general, specific and inclusive? Keep it simple. Professor gave you some great speeches to look at. Think about a good way to capture your audience with a story, a quote, an illustration. Make it You but with a connection that is real with your audience.

    Think about it Joe; think of yourself as a guest speaker to any audience you chose. Who would it be and why and for what purpose?
