Talk Analysis

TED

talks are organized and highly-vetted public speeches that give normal

people—people like you and me—a chance to spread their message to the world.

Visit __TED.com__ and watch several TED

speakers. Note that you can sort by topic, speaker, and a host of other

criteria. You can watch *any *TED

talk you wish. If you’re looking a more concentrated list, you might also wish

to visit __this link, which highlights the 25 most popular TED talks
of all time__.

After

watching a TED talk (or a few!), write a short 300-500 word (1.5-2 page)

analysis of that talk. Please ensure that you cite the talk you watched in

appropriate APA formatting. You should answer the following questions in your

analysis:

What

is the topic and who is the speaker?

How

does the speaker get the audience’s attention in the introduction?

What

are the main points of the talk? Are they easily identifiable?

What

techniques of delivery does the speaker use effectively (e.g., emotion, vivid

language, nonverbals, humor, etc.)? Please be sure to provide examples.

How

does the speaker conclude the speech? Does it echo the themes in the

introduction and “tie the knot” or does it go in a different direction?

Is

the speech effective? Did it leave an impact on you? Tell us why or why not.

What

did you learn about speech delivery after listening to this speech?

Part 2

Pick

a company whose sales you want to model and predict. Look up their sales

information and pick 2 years of data. Using that information, create a linear

equation that can be used to predict the sales of the company. Once you have

your equation, predict the sales 2 years from now.

Make

sure you include in your post the links where you found the relevant

information. Clearly show your work. This includes naming the company, sharing

the ordered pairs, defining variables, finding the slope, determining the

equation, and then using that equation to predict.
