Chapter One

The SCORRE Method

The effective communicator communicates with _______________________________, the most important aspect of communication.

If you aim at _______________________________, you will hit it every single time.

Seventy-five percent of the people leaving a speech or sermon had no idea what was communicated.

Fifty percent of the speakers cannot articulate the objective of their talk in a simple sentence.

Ask the questions _______________________________? and _______________________________?

Communication only happens when people are _______________________________ to take action, when people are _______________________________ in some way.

The people you're talking to are looking for two things:

1. _______________________________ _______________________________

2. _______________________________ _______________________________

We are ______________________________ individuals.

Unconscious goals

If you do not consciously choose an objective for your speech, an unconscious objective will take over.

1. _______________________________ _______________________________

2. _______________________________ _______________________________

3. _______________________________ _______________________________

4. _______________________________ _______________________________

5. _______________________________ _______________________________

Our messages ought to lead toward a _______________________________, so that when people walk away, they walk away with something they can hang on to, they can see, they can identify, that will impact their lives.

The SCORRE Method

The two primary functions of the SCORRE process -

1.It works like a _______________________________, forcing the speaker to focus on a

2.It works like a _______________________________, forcing the speaker to _______________________________.

How SCORRE (an acronym)accomplishes the goals


Establishing a Subject and choosing a single aspect of that subject as a Central Theme helps the speaker focus on what he or she wants to _______________________________.

Writing an Objective forces the speaker to _______________________________ of the talk.

Building powerful Rationale provides the _______________________________ for persuasion and encouragement.

Resources bring _______________________________ and _______________________________ to the talk and keep the listener interested.

The EVALUATION causes the speaker to ask, "Do I know what I'm _______________________________ about, and is it worth my listener's time?"


Subject Central Answers the question, "What do I want to talk Theme about?"

Objective Answers the question, "Why?" and defines the purpose of the talk

Rationale Provides organization and logic

Resources Adds color and clarification

Evaluation Continues from preparation to presentation

The SCORRE Method in Detail

Choose a Subject_________________

Four guidelines for choosing a subject:

1.The subject must ___________________________.

2. The subject must be within ___________________________.

Do you ___________________________. what you are talking about?

3. The subject may be ___________________________.

4. The subject is always ___________________________. ___________________________.

Focus on a Central Theme

The purpose of the central theme is __________________________. __________________________. __________________________.

'A sermon should be a bullet and not buckshot. Ideally each sermon is the explanation, interpretation, or application of a single dominant idea supported by other ideas, all drawn from one passage or several passages of Scripture.'
-Haddon Robinson, Biblical Preaching, Baker House

"We must begin with the end in mind."
-Stephen Covey, Seven Habits of Highly Successful People, Covey Leadership Center
