Choose a topic that you have knowledge about and are able to research to find additional facts and information. Choose a topic that is neutral. This is a great speech to teach the audience about a person (hero, thought leader, favorite band), place (exciting and interesting places visited or lived), or thing (a new idea, event, disease or process). Make sure you have enough information to provide the audience as well as the ability to find outside information from credible sources.
Once a topic is selected, create an outline, then do some outside research to find 3 credible sources. This speech should include 3 verbal cites, which may be things like statistics, quotes, opinions, or facts. Ensure that the sources are credible and insert the newly researched information into the speech at appropriate places in the outline. Your research should support your already created outline and provide clarification or further information for the audience.
Its now a 2-3 page essay instead of a speech due to the virus.
