Help for a speech topic
« on: February 26, 2014, 06:38:44 am »
Hey guys,

I need to write a persuasive speech in a problem-solution style setup and i have a huge problem. I don't know what i can write about. Does anyone know of any good topics i can write about for a 5-7 minute speech that's school appropriate? I'd prefer to stay away from political topics.

Did they give you a general theme for the speeches? Generally ethics are a pretty easy topic to write about.

Keep a notepad with you for the next day or so and observe the world and write down things that pop into your head.

Hmm, you could do just about anything here. Is there some problem around your school that you could do, such as school lunches or a specific rule that gets on your nerves? I remember writing a joke editorial for newspaper about the quality of TP in school restrooms in kind of the same format. That would get some laughs. Or, if Internet access is restricted at your school like it is at mine, you could write about that and suggest fewer/less strict restrictions on what you're allowed to do on the Internet.

you could talk about like animal rights/the fur industry and how its really bad! or even something light, like what the best animal/food/author is etc? i find its easiest to write and talk about something i'm passionate about :) i used to hate speeches, but now i don't mind them if i'm actually interested in my topic
