Speech

A Persuasive Full-Speech Outline

Instructions

Using the persuasive full-speech outline created for the Unit 6 discussion, review the instructor and/or peer feedback to finalize the persuasive speech outline for submission. Consider this feedback to address your challenges and revise. Revisions are a key step in the speech writing process.

Be sure to take this step.

The outline should be written in the full-speech outline method using one of the persuasive organizational patterns (Problem-Solution, Cause-Effect, or Monroe’s Motivated Sequence). The outline should have enough content to deliver an 8-10 minute persuasive speech, which you will complete in Unit 7. (Please view the sample outline attached here for more guidance on building this assignment.).

Step 1:  Finalize the Persuasive Full-Speech Outline

The outline should include the following:

  • Specific Purpose
  • Central Idea (aka: Thesis Statement or Preview Statement)
  • Introduction– capture attention, establish YOUR speaker credibility, preview the speech
  • Body– key points (minimum of 3), transitions between main points, supporting materials from at least 3 sources including in-text references to the sources.
  • Conclusion – signal the end, summarize main points
  • Researched supporting material references (minimum 3) – include works cited at the end of your outline, use APA format.
  • Identification of a presentation aid(visual)
  • Use persuasive techniques and language

Step 2:  Complete the Reflection Questions

Answer the following reflection questions, in addition to the finalized persuasive speech outline. You can include the answers at the end of your works cited:

  1. What types of persuasion did you choose to include? Why? How would they best persuade your target audience?
  2. What challenges did you have crafting our outline? How did you overcome them?
  3. What do you think is the strength of this outline? Why?

Case study

cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes

45-year-old woman presents with chief complaint of 3-day duration of shortness of breath, cough with thick green sputum production, and fevers. Patient has history of COPD with chronic cough but states the cough has gotten much worse and is interfering with her sleep. Sputum is thicker and harder for her to expectorate. CXR reveals flattened diaphragm and increased AP diameter. Auscultation demonstrates hyper resonance and coarse rales and rhonchi throughout all lung fields.

Develop a 2-page case study analysis, examining the patient symptoms presented in the case study.

Be sure to address the following:

1. Explain both the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes of why the patient presents these symptoms.

2. Explain how the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes interact to affect the patient.

3. Explain any racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning.

Computer Purchase

Planning a Computer Purchase

For this assignment, you will research your computer needs and components for a computer system that meets those needs and complete a template to summarize your research.

Perform a web search for articles that will help you choose the right computer based on how you plan to use the device. Review at least three different articles of your choice and identify the computer specifications. (You will list references for all three articles within your template using APA citations.)

Perform a web search for companies that offer customizable computer builds. Be sure to use keywords for your computer preference to help narrow down the search. For example, you may search for “build a custom laptop.”

Choose a company to start your custom computer build.

Using the customizable option, play with the different options available per hardware piece and select the item that best suits your personal needs. Identify the price of the different hardware parts that are needed for your device.

Hint:

Consider how you plan to use the computer as you select the necessary options. If you are a gamer, what do you need to play your favorite game? If you create videos, what do you need to process high-quality videos? What speed is required to efficiently complete common tasks? Think about what you really need from your system.

Complete the table in the template, adding the choices you made, why you chose the items, and how much each item costs.

Note

Be sure to cite each source you used in your research with a reference in APA format.

Statistics

Statistics

In this module, you will explore how statistics are used in careers that are common for those who earn degrees in psychology. You have learned about the general importance of being able to think statistically throughout the course, but here we will focus on career applications that may be particularly relevant to you and your professional goals. Statistics and statistical thinking are present and required in many professions. Statistics are used to gain valuable insights from data to improve performance and outcomes in many careers. For example, many undergraduates in psychology desire to enter a helping profession (e.g., drug and alcohol counseling, professional counseling, marriage and family therapy, etc.). Of course, all of these professions are required to follow evidence-based practice—which means that data and statistical analysis are required to support therapeutic interventions applied with clients.

For this discussion, read the article What Can You Do With a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology? from the American Psychological Association. This discussion will focus on considering how statistics, statistical thinking, or data literacy are important in a career that is common to psychology graduates and that interests you.

For your initial post, address the following:

 

Racial and ethnic identities

Racial and ethnic identities

People conceptualize their racial/ethnic identities and respond to inequalities in a variety of ways. Social workers must never make assumptions about a client based on experiences with other clients of the same group. Each has their own story—their own thoughts, reactions, and coping mechanisms. So… how do you access that story? How do you gather details about a client’s racial and ethnic identity, in a culturally humble manner, to inform your assessments?

In this Discussion, you practice assessing one such client who is a member of a marginalized ethnic group. As part of your assessment, you analyze the client’s interactions with systems and the dominant ethnic group.

To Prepare
  • Review the Learning Resources on cultural formulation and cultural competence. https://dsm.psychiatryonline.org/doi/10.1176/appi.books.9780890425596.CulturalFormulation
  • Access the Social Work Case Studies media in the Learning Resources and explore the case of Aaron.
  • Consider the skills you would employ while assessing Aaron and how you might view his experience in the context of ethnicity.
Post an explanation of the skills and considerations needed to conduct an initial assessment with Aaron. Specifically:
  • What does Aaron need, and why?
  • What questions would you, as the social worker, ask to provide him with support and better understand his story?
Then, analyze Aaron’s experience as a marginalized ethnic group in the United States.
  • What systems does Aaron interact with?
  • In what ways might the dominant ethnic group be impacting Aaron’s experience?

Race and ethnicity

Race and ethnicity

The election of the first Black president in 2008 and the first Black and South Asian vice president in 2020 may have appeared to some that the United States was a nation beyond race. But these events sit alongside many others that paint an entirely different picture: the killings of unarmed Black men; waves of hate crimes against the Asian-American, Arab-American, and Sikh-American communities; continued maltreatment of Indigenous peoples; and poor health outcomes for people of color.

As a social worker, it is important for you to stay abreast of current events to understand how they may impact the clients, families, and communities with whom you work. You must also consider how you interact with the world on subjects related to race and ethnicity. How do these circumstances shape you and your anti-racist practice?

For this Discussion, you select and analyze a current event connected to race and ethnicity and how you might support the affected population in your practice.

To Prepare

  • Identify a current issue or event (within the past year) that speaks to race and ethnicity. It could be local to your community, or it could be national.
  • Consider how you would provide culturally competent social work practice to the affected population.

Post a description of a current issue or event that speaks to race and ethnicity.

Then explain the following:
  • How the event connects to race or ethnicity, and to your current understanding of power, privilege, and oppression
  • How you, as a social worker, would approach the population affected. How would you provide culturally competent practice?
  • How your approach aligns with and illuminates your personal statement on anti-racist social work practice
