I have written a speech it is called, getting dragged around by your parents.
I was learning to hook the audience in to my speech by using a rhetorical question, for example, Have you ever been dragged around to your brother or sisters after school activities? I am multistructural because I have followed the map but it might not be exact.
Many ideas that I came up with connected to my main idea. I used many language devices to hook my readers in.
My speech went well because when I read it to the class they were hooked In.

Have you ever been dragged around to your brother or sisters after school activities? Maybe your sisters music lessons or perhaps your brothers sport practice or even your father's car club? When I get dragged around I take my iPad and mum makes me bring my homework book. Uuuuh, well no one likes homework do they? The homework I hate the most is not reading, not writing and not even maths but spelling, spelling is just the worst. No one likes getting dragged around by your parents, but it’s worse when you have to do your spelling! There are lots of things that you could do to keep yourself entertained instead.
Every week on a Thursday I am dragged off to Lyttleton for my sister's violin lesson which takes forever when you have to wait in the car. To keep yourself entertained in the car, you could play games with your parents, annoy your siblings or even play with your dog, if you have one. You could listen to the radio or maybe play on a device, like I do, that is, when I finish my homework if I ever do!
We were going home from Lyttelton one time and we were in the tunnel. I was on my iPad and my sister saw a glowing light coming from the back, because she was in the front she said “Hamish are you on your iPad” I quickly turned it off and said “no definitely not”. After that I turned my iPad back on she looked in the back, and in my head I said “busted”... Come on can't a kid get a break just making up on lost device time and all the homework was done too.
Another time We were going home from Lyttelton, when Mum tried to start the car but it didn't start. The problem was that my iPad was on really low battery! I was bored! No more minecraft, mining, building, surviving what a disaster, Mum had to call dad on her cell phone. She couldn't find it, she looked everywhere, under the seats of the car, in the boot, not in the bonnet because how could it get in there, she had another little check in her handbag and there it was right in front of her nose! So she called dad. Not only did we have to wait for the lesson to finish but we then had to wait to be rescued. Dad came and tried to get mums car to work but no it didn't start. He had to call a tow truck to come the next day it came and it turned out to be just the petrol was on the side and it didn't reach the engine, because we were on a hill.
So if you ever get dragged around to your brother or sisters after school activities you could play games with your parents, annoy your siblings or even play with your dog, if you have one. You could listen to the radio or maybe play on a device. there is one thing you can be sure of…spelling still sucks but... it could be the start of an exciting adventure!
