Default Writing Informative Speech...

Well I have to write a Informative Speech for my public speaking class and was almost stumped on a topic.

I was considering talking about the recent findings that bio-fuels might be more harmful then beneficial. It is only required to be 3 minutes and I have to break it down to 3 ideas. The topic can be about anything just not vulgar or offensive.

If you have some suggestions for topics or comments on my topic I am all ears.

*looks around forum and thinks real hard...* Paintball? Not many know how much of a sport paintball actually is. You could speak on various aspects of paintball that might be interesting to those outside the sport.

Other than that... I have no ideas, if I think of anything good I'll pass it on. Good luck Dave!

I did an informative speech on how to disassemble a paintball gun.

I KNOW you could do that.

Haha good point d. I was thinking about paintball but my mind would wonder and suddenly I am search on forums and ebay for parts I was looking for.

Maybe the three different types of paintball players. Beginner, Rec and Tournament?

Different Leagues could be another topic. NPPL, PSP and XSPL?

I also need a visual aid so I might put a poll up for what to take. I can borrow guns and misc equipment from the shop so that isnt a problem

The terminology is going to be the difficult part I can see as there is a lot you have to teach them.

I did an informative speech in college on how to make a grilled cheese sandwich with a clothes iron (living in the dorm where no stoves allowed...)

I enjoyed doing it so much, that now I teach my 5th graders the same lesson when we do expository writing!

Three minutes is not a long time. Keep it to a simple topic (like vikes sandwich making, that's a good idea of complexity of subject matter). Keep in mind that all good speeches should have an opening, a middle and an end, so leave some little time for that. An expert in public speaking told me once that his best speeches go like this: "tell them what you're going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them."

Yes best advice. I have actually heard it from my teacher and dad as well so it must work. I want something simple but I couldn't help myself to staying away from the complex ones. I would like to save a paintball topic for my later speeches as those are going to be longer and will be easier for me to fill that time.
