Obama speech exampleObama explores his passion for the education of the young community by preaching the importance of parenting and how parents need to, “[attend] those parent-teacher conferences and [read] to our children and [help] them with their homework.” He lists off roles parents need to fulfil to show how important it is and this captures the people within the audience that are parents. This, on a wider scale, shows how he believes in solidarity and the idea of joint responsibility as, “all these innovative programs and expanded opportunities will not, in and of themselves, make a difference if each of us, as parents and as community leaders, fail to do our part by encouraging excellence in our children.” He uses 1st person plurals, “us” and “ours”, as it authenticates his speech, as he is a father himself so he knows what he is talking about and creates unity throughout the audienceThe Break-downObama explores his passion for the education of the young community by preaching the importance of parenting and how parents need to, “[attend] those parent-teacher conferences and [read] to our children and [help] them with their homework.”  = A/V/I given along with a linked quote  He lists off roles parents need to fulfil to show how important it is = F/S/L given and this captures the people within the audience that are parents. = C/P/A given   This, on a wider scale, shows how he believes in solidarity and the idea of joint responsibility as,“all these innovative programs and expanded opportunities will not, in and of themselves, make a difference if each of us, as parents and as community leaders, fail to do our part by encouraging excellence in our children.” = Extended A/V/I given with a linked quote He uses 1st person plurals, “us” and “ours”, as it authenticates his speech, as he is a father himself so he knows what he is talking about = F/S/L givenand creates unity throughout the audience. = C/P/A given .
