Checklist For Speech Outline

1.) Have I used a standard set of symbols to indicate structure?
2.) Have I written main points and major subdivisions as complete sentences?
3.) Do main points and major subdivisions each contain a single idea?
4.) Does each major subdivision relate to or support its major point?
5.) Are potential subdivision elaborations indicated?
6.)  Does the outline include no more than one-third the total number of words anticipated in the speech?  We speak roughly 160 words per minute.
