Create an outline for a persuasive speech Persuade the audience about a question of fact, value, or policy. You are expected to write your speech from “scratch.” The idea is to learn the speech process by selecting the topic, analyzing the audience, preparing (researching and outlining) the
speech, and delivering the speech.Topics that you should avoid: Religion Politics Health care Depressing subjects Note: Speaking on political or religious topics (abortion, capital punishment, marijuana, same-sex marriage, war, etc.) is rarely effective. People have deep-rooted feelings on
these topics that have developed over many years. You are not likely to change anyone’s mind in a six- to eight-minute speech; however, you might create a hostile audience. Focus on a question of fact, value, or policy that is politically and religiously neutral. Finally, depressing subjects are a bummer; pick something fun and exciting.
