It has got to be something you know...or it would suck having to give the speech and someone listening would know you did not know.

So, pretty hard to give someone a topic. It has to be something they know/feel/love/hate...unless of course you want to do the research to do another topic. I never liked that option.

Research is a requirement. Blahh.. so no matter what I'm gonna have to do it.

In the eighth grade, I a gave a great speach about Vietnamese death traps. I had a simple diagram of each death trap and my speech was basically explaining how each one worked. It was something that most people knew very little about, but found instantly facinating.

I gave an extemperaneous speech on how to change a tire properly. The instructor really liked it and so did the women in the class. I didn't know what I was going to say on the way to the front of the room. It was scary.

I remember seeing a few interesting ones. Most of the funnier and shorter ones were very simple. One person did how to change a tire, someone else did how to tie a necktie.

Just pick one of your hobbies and explain everything about it.

Those how-to's are demonstrative speeches. That's next week, I'm demonstrating making sushi and bringing some pre-rolled ones in to the class.

My tire changing speech was both demonstrative and extemperaneous. What are you going to do about that?

Do an expository on how the Denver Broncos should have their superbowl titles taken away for cheating. Plenty of examples and what not, and you can bury the teacher with research to look through.

I made a living in history and govt. classes with Vietnam. No fewer than one paper per year from the 7th grade on. If she decides to go that way the Tunnel Rats are a great source of material that is fairly focused yet has the attention grabbing courage, dismemberment, and death angles.

Go with Buddhism. Lots of info, most people will know very little and their current beliefs about it will likely be destroyed by the realities, even at a very shallow level. You can also make lots of connections between the ancient teachings and modern science.

Boring, I want something that's going to be fun and entertaining to present. Though ya'll might have some wonderful ideas. If you care to share... I'd love to hear.


Yesss I'm prepared for the jokes. . . :)Back in the day, when I had speech class, my favorite speeches were, "Dorm room Drinking games", and "Why marijuana should be legal". This second speech, I was on a group of speakers with the mode of the speach being persuasion. My task was to present the economic ramifications of legalization. Needless to say, we got an A.

If your speech teacher is anything like the one i had, it won't matter she'll fail you anyways. I swear my speech professor was the biggest bitch in the entire world. She grunted all the time and her fake laugh sounded like George Bush...as did her little lectures. If I didn't know any better I would swear it was a George Bush from hell stuck in an old woman's body


Anyways..Do a speech on something you know a little about, but not too much. That way you will learn something as you do research and you shouldn't get too bored. I'm sure your class would love to hear a speech on something gory, so maybe different kinds of executions or something. There's no way that could get boring.

Seriously, speech classes aren't about being able to give elaborate reports and impressive research, they are about being able to speak to, and convey info to a group of people. Pick a subject you are interested in and go with it. (your pic thread on fishing could even work - topic "Fishing isn't just for Men" and share about the sport and why ladies should be willing to give it a try) Also, relax, don't speak too fast either. Most people get excited and talk too fast.

There are some fascinating but largely forgotten characters in history, like Carlos Hathcock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Hathcock), Peter Francisco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Francisco), Anne Bonny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Bonny), and Olaf Trygvesson. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olaf_Trygvesson) They'd each be good for a decent speech.
