The central focus of Speech #2 is persuasion. Your goal will be to sell the “audience” on an idea, a concept, and in some ways – yourself. Dramatic music played after that last sentence.
PROMPT:
Imagine that you have the ability to change one thing about the United States that would permanently stick forever. For this prompt, devise a speech in which you present to the country your one single change, and why they should agree with you that it’s a step in the right direction. Topics can range from the more serious (i.e. “universal healthcare”, “abortion rights”, etc) to the less serious (you can argue that America should be renamed Hamburger Garbage, or that the driving age be lowered to 3). Regardless of your topic, your goal is to be persuasive, prompt, and effective in your delivery!
(FOR MY WRITER)
I WILL LIKE MY TOPIC TO BE ABOUT MAKING THIS WORLD A MORE INCLUSIVE PLACE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES BECAUSE I HAVE CEREBRAL PALSY MYSELF. FOR THE WRITING, I JUST NEED LIKE A 20-25 SENTENCE SPEECH, NOT AN ENTIRE PAGE. PLEASE TRY TO KEEP THE SENTENCES SHORT AND SIMPLE BECAUSE I HAVE TO READ THE SPEECH OUT LOUD AND I HAVE A SPEECH IMPAIRMENT. THANK YOU! PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS!
