Attach this with your video in Connect. If you complete the worksheet on the next page, you can use this as your speaking outline and submit it with your video.  Attach your Speaking Outline to the assignment in Connect. After you submit the video, there is a place to attach documents. Browse your computer to find your Speaking Outline. In order for your speech to count as “on time” you must submit your Speaking Outline at the time you submit your video and by the due date on the calendar. Label the outline properly both within the document and as the title of the document, along with your first and last names.  So, the title of your outline (save your documents with this title) will be “Sales Pitch Speaking Outline – YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME)

·      Practice your speech several times so you know it well and know it fits the time requirements.

·      Your classmates will serve as your audience for this speech. (no need to gather one)
