Question 1 (Chapter 18)
Write a Commemorative Speech one page in length. In this Commemorative Speech, you will pay tribute to one person. This speech will be in MS Word, double-spaced, Ariel font, font size 11.
The person to whom you pay tribute is a person you currently know personally or knew personally. This person will not be a famous, historical, or contemporary figure. Because this is a Commemorative Speech, this assignment calls for a less didactic speech than the informative and persuasive speeches.

This one-page Commemorative Speech must exemplify the principles of commemorative speaking discussed in Chapter 18.
