Informative Speech, 3-5 minutes, (100 points): The main goal of an informative speech is to provide enlightenment regarding a specific topic the audience may know nothing about. You may choose any topic whatsoever as you will do a better job on something of interest to you. The topics covered in an informative speech should help the audience to understand a subject better, to inform us on a subject and to remember what we learned later. You will be graded using the presentation rubric.

  • the overall topic,
  • general idea,
  • approach to your topic,
  • a few bullet points.
