The Canons of Rhetoric

A speech is not an essay on its hind legs” – James A. Winans

You were taught to write in schools, but nobody teach you how to speak well.

The Canons of Rhetoric:

– Invention: content, good ideas (evidence, example, …), what’s useful for audience

– Arrangement: in a way audience easily to understand

– Style: base on audience

– Memory: IMPORTANT – remember main part, not every words

– Deliver: stand and present before audience
