Write an ORIGINAL 1-3 minutes eulogy, toast, commencement address, award presentation or award acceptance speech. Use vivid language, rhythm and imagery.
1. Language resources such as metaphors, similes, and hyperbole will make your speech come alive.
2, Rhyme, alliteration, repetition and antithesis help create rhythm.
3. Paint a vivid picture by using imagery. Appeal to the 5 senses.
For example, If you are giving grandma the Phenomenal Fried Pie Prize, don’t just say her fried apple pie is good. Tell us how it tastes, smells, feels, looks and how it sounds sizzling in the pan. Example topics:
Write a funny eulogy for an old worn out pair of jeans you loved or do a serious speech eulogizing a friend you lost.
Other options are to write a toast or commencement address to your speech class or to present an award to someone or accept an award.
Feel free to make up an award. You might present an award for the Longest Speech Award or the Bed Head Award.
You do not have to have any sources. In fact, this speech is totally fictitious, so you can be whomever you want to be and make up the entire speech.
