Went to see Springsteen and the Seeger Sessions Band perform at Jazzfest, yesterday. Was quite a treat.As to your question: Here, at UL Lafayette, we like to break the informative and persuasive presentations up into 2 different speeches (5-7 minutes each). Main reason is: Once you make a move to advocacy, the speech (in its entirety) becomes a persuasive speech. I guess one could do a combination speech, as you have outlined. But, doing so [even when done in the business world] amounts to doing 2 speeches which are similarly themed (in my opinion). Interesting concept of pairing the speeches together for a longer presentation, actually. But, I would likely still be inclined to keep the genres distinct so that the students know the difference between merely conveying information and advocating for/against an issue.Ty Adams
