Here is the beginning of a topic sentence outline for a rhetorical analysis essay based on Nelson Mandela’s “Poverty” speech. Note the three color-coded elements of the thesis (topic, claim, list of main ideas). Be sure to include all three parts in your thesis and check for parallelism in your wording of the three main points.
Thesis: In Nelson Mandela’s “Poverty Speech,” Mandela created an effective speech through repeating key words, speaking to a global audience, and using emotional appeals to convince his listeners that poverty needs to end.
Main Idea #1: By repeating key words relating to the global problem of poverty throughout his speech, Mandela highlights the significance of the problem.
First sub point: Mandela uses the word “global” repeatedly during the speech.
Evidence: In speaking of the white band he is wearing on his arm, he explains, “I am proud to wear the symbol of this global call to action in 2005.”
Analysis: Mandela uses the word “global” to stress that poverty is not unique to one country but is a problem that people around the world need to take action on.
Second sub point: At the end of his speech, Mandela repeats two similar call to action sentences to emphasize his point about eradicating poverty.
Evidence: Mandela says, “Make poverty history in 2005. Make history in 2005.”
Analysis: The repeated pattern of these similar sentences reminds the listener about the main point of the speech and reinforces Mandela’s persuasive message about ending poverty.
Main Idea #2: Mandela’s choice to speak before a global audience also demonstrated the value of what he had to say and emphasized that poverty is a worldwide problem.
Main Idea #3: Mandela’s effective use of pathos helped engage his listeners to his cause by appealing to their emotions.
NOTE: The pattern for providing supporting ideas for a topic sentence is shown for Main idea #1. When you complete your outline template, you need to add sub point sentences, evidence and analysis for each main idea.
You must limit your outline and Work Cited to two pages. (Remember to remove directions from the template after you have filled in your sentence outline, but keep the labels to show the purpose for each sentence.) When you print out your outline including the Work Cited to use for the midterm exam, you should print a double-sided copy. You will be allowed to use only ONE double-sided piece of paper when testing.
