-Respond to the following Classmate\’s Post about \”Informative and Persuasive Speech Differences\”.
When someone is speaking informatively, their purpose is to convey knowledge and understanding to their listeners. There are four types of informative speeches a person can give; \”(1) speeches about objects, (2) speeches about processes, (3) speeches about events, and (4) speeches about concepts\”(Lucas). When someone is speaking persuasively, their purpose is to change their listener\’s beliefs or actions. \”When you speak to persuade, you act as advocate. Your job is to get listeners to agree with you and, perhaps, to act on that belief. Giving an informative speech can be more simple than giving a persuasive speech in that all the speaker is doing is informing the audience(they\’re not trying to change any beliefs or actions the audience has). For example, giving an informative speech about how the electoral college works or how a toy is made through the factory line can be simpler to explain to an audience than a persuasive speech about mandatory drug testing for athletes or freedom of speech. The reason is because depending on your topic, your audience might already have set values or beliefs, so it can be a challenge persuading your audience in another direction, action, or belief. During this week, I learned that how successful you are in any persuasive speech depends on how well you tailor your message to your listeners\’ values, attitudes, and beliefs. The audience will accept the speaker\’s ideas because they see that the speaker has high credibility, because they were won over by the speaker\’s evidence, because they were convinced by the speaker\’s reasoning, and/or because they were moved by the speaker\’s emotional appeals.
