Draft Pitch Presentation

Start now to prepare your 90-second, later-in-the-term, in-class media/elevator pitch to advocate the need for a specific action, urgently, on behalf of a social cause or social problem-solving initiative. Comments from professor: good start but needs improvement. There’s a difference in how something is written for reading, and how something is written for the spoken word.

What you have here is written for reading — and your pitch, of course, is something you will be speaking, so it will need to start with a personal story and get quickly to the need of the initiative you’re promoting and what you want to ask your audience to do, to help fill that need.
