As we have learned from our course readings, persuasive presentations have some very distinct elements, including the way they are organized, that make them different from informative presentations. After reading about persuasive presentations in Chapter 6, think of a speech topic, (different than the topic of your Week 5 Final Presentation) identify which organizational structure you would use for that speech topic and explain why that structure would be the most effective for persuading your audience on that topic.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references according to APA formatting as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
