    Ok, fair enough, I'll help.

    First, think of what you want to say - what point do you want to get across?
    Then, research some information about this subject.
    Next, make a powerpoint, or handouts.
    Finally, voila. Une Presentation.

    Are you for real?

    Write a list of all the things you can think about death affecting people eg, close family member dying, funeral costs, arranging the funeral, wills, disease such as cancer, accidents, trauma, grief counselling, children who are affected, hospital staff... idk, anything!
    Pick one or more...

    ..then use your brain.

    Funeral costs are one of the things that evoke emotion in people! Could you imagine having the person nearest to you die, and not being able to afford the costs? Or having to arrange the funeral on your own? Think of the difficulty, the heartbreak.
    You wouldnt just write about one thing, ffs. But this is a part of death.
    Do you want to write about the same thing everyone else has written about?
    Or do you want to show your teacher that youve researched hard and thought about everything.

    What about the conflict between death being a release for the person who dies and almost a prison sentence for the people they leave behind, e.g grief, sorry, etc.
    What about trying to be contoversial? Trying to find a positive of death, for example the relief people can feel when someone dies who is in pain or even someone they hate. Also how death affects people of different ages, children may not understand it and their grief is delayed till they're older. Do you think older people feel as much sorrow, maybe they don't because they're closer to death themselves.


    Hopefully I've given you some ideas!
