Original Oratory - Substructure This guide offers tips for understanding substructure in Original Oratory. We will focus on the substructure of a main point, walking you through the process of decoding substructure, outlining, and turning it into a drafted main point. This is not meant to be the definitive and only method for determining substructure; rather, it is meant to provide a solid foundation for students and coaches looking to improve their understanding of speech construction. Upon developing an understanding of substructure and how to apply it, examples will be used to help visualize the transition from page to stage! resources classroom-resources, original-oratory 2016-09-19 Resource Pkg
