The Personal Narrative Speech 
  • The Personal Narrative Speech and Essay are all
    about you!

The Personal Narrative Speech
  • The main point is that you are talking about
    yourself, your thoughts, your feelings, your
    ideas, your views, your opinions, and your
    events.
  • All of these ideas are the main components of
    this special speech writing process.

3
The Personal Narrative Speech
  • To create a personal narrative, explore each of
    these personal ideas, and then choose one to
    narrow down so you can build a speech.
  • The goal of the personal narrative is also to
    make a point about
  • a personal past or present experience,
  • event,
  • knowledge,
  • or moral lesson.

11
Once you have chosen an idea, you will need to
narrow the speech topic appropriately.
  • Here are some suggestions
  • Pick out one significant story about yourself.
    Dont try to tell your life storynarrow your
    topic down.
  • Then, think about the point you want to make and
    the response you want to get from your audience.
    What do you want them to remember? What is the
    purpose, point, goal, lesson, or plot of your
    story? Why might your audience think your
    presentation is valuable or important?
  • Think about your narrative just like a short
    story and include all of the story elements the
    main event, the characters, the relevant details,
    the steps and/or dialogue.
  • Organize the text of the speech in a time ordered
    format. The chronological order also helps you
    to remember your key ideas better.

12
  • More suggestions for narrowing your topic
  • Avoid starting your speech with an explanation of
    what you learned from this event use the
    chronological order strategy to build up to the
    resolution where you can explain the life lesson
    this experience taught you.
  • Add transitions words like then, after that,
    next, at this moment.
  • Rehearse!!! Rehearse your narrative in front of
    a friend and ask opinions. Then practice
    again!!!
  • Avoid memorizing or reading your speech. Your
    audience will enjoy your narrative so much better
    if you sound like you are just talking to them.
  • Be sure to try and make eye contact with your
    listeners.

13
Structuring the Narrative Speech
  • To develop a thesis, ask yourself these
    questions
  • What is the main point I want to make to my
    audience?
  • Do I want them to identify me as a caring
    individual?
  • Do I want them to think Im smart so Ill tell
    them about the honors I won last year?
  • How can I present my topic so that it
    accomplishes my purpose?  How would I go about
    doing that?

14

  • Time period
  • Develop the Rising Action
  • Introduce a conflict(s)
  • Build to a climactic moment
