FINDING A PERSUASIVE SPEECH TOPIC

Unlike the informative speech, where we were just giving information about your topic, the persuasive speech requires that you choose one side of an issue and PERSUADE the audience to agree with you.

GOOD PLACES TO LOOK FOR PERSUASIVE SPEECH TOPICS:

A SHOW CALL “FRONTLINE” ON PBS

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/

GO TO THE “TOPICS” BUTTON AND CLICK ON IT.

THE FOLLOWING TOPIC AREAS (LISTED ON FRONTLINE) OFTEN HAVE AMAZING TOPICS

“CRIMINAL JUSTICE”

“EDUCATION”

“HEALTH”

“ENVIRONMENT”

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT YOUR THESIS STATEMENT MUST BE WRITTEN AS AN ARGUMENT.

INCORRECT SAMPLE THESIS STATEMENT:

TODAY, I AM GOING TO PERSUADE THE AUDIENCE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT.

THIS SAMPLE IS NOT WRITTEN PROPERLY (AS AN ARGUMENT) BECAUSE THE SENTENCE DOES NOT TELL THE AUDIENCE WHAT SIDE THE SPEAKER IS ON. THE WORD “ABOUT” IS ESPECIALLY PROBLEMATIC BECAUSE IT LEAVES THE THESIS AMBIGUOUS. WHAT ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT???????

You must write the thesis statement so that it clearly stated what side you are on.

CORRECT SAMPLE THESIS STATEMENT:

TODAY, I AM GOING TO PERSUADE THE AUDIENCE THAT THE ENVIRONMENT IS IN JEOPARDY AND WE MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO SAVE IT.

INCORRECT SAMPLE THESIS STATEMENT:

TODAY I’M GOING TO PERSUADE THE AUDIENCE ABOUT GUN CONTROL.

(WHAT ABOUT IT? ARE YOU FOR IT? AGAINST IT?…..THE WAY THE ABOVE SENTENCE IS WRITTEN WE HAVE NO IDEA.

CORRECT SAMPLE THESIS STATEMENT:

TODAY I’M GOING TO PERSUADE THE AUDIENCE THAT THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD BAN ALL AUTOMATIC AND SEMIAUTOMATIC FIRE ARMS.
