    I have to give my second speech for my class on thursday. I have NO clue what to talk about. :/

    First talk was an informative speech and I "informed" everyone about what it was like to be a volunteer dog-walker at the HS.

    My second speech is suppose to be a Persuasive speech. I have no clue what to persuade them about though! :(

    The speeches can be about anything, but I don't necessarily want to continue doing things about dogs though. I want to make a bit of a variety, just so I can get better. I just don't know what to do! :(

    Any idea's?

    what else are you passionate about? It's a good idea to pick a topic you really believe in for a persuasive speech--could be a hobby, or could be practices (breeding vs puppymill).

    Persuade them to switch dog food brands.

    Or to join you in song and dance, whichever you think would go over better.

    well, there are a few other things I'm passionate about, but I don't think I could give a speech on them. I'm not prepared for that.

    blah, I'm such a boring person. :(

    No you're not. :)

    How about why pit bulls should NOT be banned?

    You know that would be a good one! I was kinda thinking I could wait for that one, till I can have a "prop" to bring in ;) If I could fine a good one! Though, I'm not sure that would work with the other speeches........
    The last three speeches (after the first one I did, "Informative," and this next one, "Persausive.") are:

    Entertainment,
    Hi-Tech
    "I have a dream"

    And those three we can have a prop, but not the first two. IDK if I should wait, and try to make the pitbull thing work for one of the last three so I can bring in a pitty as an example (if I can find a well behaved one that is!) or just try it now? Opinions?
