You need to write at least 15 questions. Then, write an analysis explaining what you think the questionnaire will reveal about your audience and what steps you must take to adapt your speech to the audience.

Once you have the specific purpose statements, explain how the speech seeking immediate action would differ in structure and persuasive appeals from the speech seeking passive agreement. Be specific. Use the verbiage introduced in the chapter. Activity Three: Methods of Persuasion Activity (Chapter 16)
