The role of evidence in your speech.
Use evidence to validate your claim. Explain how and why the evidence supports your claim. Be brief. For each claim you want to...

State it.

Explain it.

Prove it.

Conclude it.

A claim is anything you want it to be. Pick a subject then pick a side. As an example "The school year is too long." is the claim. You can agree or disagree with that claim but you must have/use evidence to back it up.
