Does the statement of purpose meet these three tests?
CENTRAL IDEA/THESIS states in one sentence what the speech is about. It focuses on the content of the speech. Summarizes the speech in one sentence.
The central idea should be a complete declarative sentence- not a phrase or clause, and not a question, but a grammatically, complete sentence. Uses direct, specific language.
Phrase: Car maintenance
Question: Is regular car maintenance important?
Complete declarative sentence: Maintaining your car regularly can ensure that it provides reliable transportation.
After formulating central idea, test it against these guidelines:
â€¢ Is the central idea a declarative statement?
â€¢ Is the central idea a complete sentence?
â€¢ Does the central idea use specific language?
â€¢ Is the central idea a single idea?
â€¢ Does the central idea reflect a consideration of the audience? The occasion? The speaker?

B. Supporting material should be personal and concrete, and it should appeal to your listenersâ€™ senses.
SUBPOINTS. They provide supporting material to your main/major points.
Here is where you can do your oral citations of your supporting material for these points.
