1. Choosing a Topic Is it interesting? Will your audience find it interesting? Do you know something about it or will you be able to find enough information and ideas about the topic? A topic that is personal to you is often the best idea so that you feel relaxed and confident about what you are saying.
2. Brainstorming and Planning Write down everything you can think of about your topic key words and phrases information thoughts and feelings ways to present your content
3. Writing your Speech Sort your ideas from your brainstorming and planning - order them Work out your beginning, middle and end
Beginning - get the audience's attention eg) a rhetorical question, a riddle, a sudden movement or word. Expression!! Middle - your information, give examples, tell a `story', make the audience believe in what you are saying and try to involve them. End - sum up with a conclusion that will leave the audience thinking. What was the main point of your speech? Examples
4. Length of your Speech it should be at least two minutes long and no longer than three minutes.
