Developing Purpose and Thesis Statements


Prepare purpose statements and thesis statements for speech topics
Apply standard methods for creating fully developed speech topics

Assignment Overview
In this writing assignment, you will practice selecting a topic and developing purpose and thesis statements for different types of speeches.
A 250-word table
Step 1 Consider the scenario.
Imagine that you need to submit a proposal for an informative speech about three potential topics of your choice. If your proposal is accepted, you will have 30 minutes to present your speeches.
Step 2 Use a table to get started.
For each of the three topics, use this table to plan your speech.


General Purpose



Main Points


Step 3 Enter a topic.
Enter a topic suitable for each scenario presented in Step 1 in the Topic column of the table.
Step 4 Enter the general purpose.
For example, “To inform my audience about skin cancer” (with the topic being skin cancer).
Step 5 Enter the thesis.
Enter a thesis based on the corresponding topic and purpose.
Step 6 Generate a question
The answer to this question should be the thesis.
Step 7 Identify and generate main points.
Enter the thesis statement, question, and main points into your word processing document using the format in the example shown here:
Thesis Statement: The government should (or should not) provide health insurance coverage to all citizens.
Question: Why should the government provide health insurance coverage to all citizens?
Main Points:

Health care is prohibitively expensive for citizens without health insurance.
The first question you are asked when you call most doctors’ offices in the United States is, “What type of insurance do you have?”
People without health insurance may be unable to get the health care they need.

Step 8 Repeat the above steps until you have three sets of thesis statement, question and main points.
Step 9 Save and submit your assignment.
When you have completed the assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy to your instructor using the dropbox.
