Persuasive Speech

Postby SuptownSpartans34 » Wed Mar 30, 2005 1:39 pm

I need to do a persuasive speech for my english class. I've got a few ideas in mind, but could you guys list a few that I could do the essay on? Just a few ideas would be great. Thanks!

Maybe on why Bonds or McGwire should/shouldn't be in the HOF....depending on how you feel?

I would (of course) do something on baseball, if you teacher would be cool with that. If not, try something about politics and take the side you know your teacher is on. :-D Something about oil prices would hit a common denominator I imagine.

Maybe persuade people why using some steroids are actually helpful to you, just to buck the trend. Not all steroids is bad as Mark Mcgwire so elegantly put it.

I always did speeches based off of research papers I had done in different classes. That way you basically have all your sources and research ready to go.

Do you have any old persuasive papers?

Persuade people that persuasive arguments are innefective. That would kick ass if you could convince them of it.

That's just the way I think......Always form a conundrum, everyone will be impressed. ;-D

That's awesome. I would totally do that if I were still in school.

Anything you are passionate about is a good start. ;-D
