BACKGROUND

challenging traditional modes of argument

WHAT IS INVITATIONAL SPEAKING?

A type of public speaking in which a speaker enters a dialogue with the audience

Biggest priority is to understand and appreciate different positions, even if they are different from your own

Persuasion's goal = Agreement ; Invitational's goal = Exploration

THREE CONDITIONS

  • Equality: All perspectives are equally valid
  • Value: All perspectives have inherent value
  • Self-Determination: Everyone is an expert in their own life and can make their own decisions

INVITATIONAL LANGUAGE

  • Use "I" language
  • Affirmation -ex. parroting; "I see where you are coming from"
  • Ask questions

  • Get in groups
  • Once in groups, I will go around and give each group a question
  • Each individual in the group should answer the question (you can all have the same opinion or differing opinion- does not matter)
  • Provide your own reason why you believe the way you do
  • PRESENT: when up at front, each member will say their opinion then will invite the audience for a discussion
  • GOAL: try to use 'I' language and remember to affirm the audience member
