Setting out a speech watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am writing a speech for my English coursework and it's been suggested that i have a question and answer session at the end, how would i set this out?
    Any help would be appreciated, kind of left this to the last minute!

    I've done one speech in the past and the easiest thing to do is to come up a few question that are quite straight forward and come up with one or two that require extra reading and further development on your speech. This looks particularly good as it shows that you have displayed extra knowledge and have fully grasped the context on hand.

    Lets say your speech was on the war on Iraq, you could have questions like:

    What countries formed the coalition forces? - Straight forward

    How was it determined that "Major Combat had ceased"? - Little harder

    Was there an hidden agenda on the war on Iraq? - Tough, open to debate.

    (Bear in mind this might not be the level you want - I'm not sure if this speech is for GCSE or AS/A2)

    Oh yeh sorry, bit vague! It's for AS coursework. I was more concerned about how i would set out the questions, should i write the questioners name and then use a colon before writing the question?

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
