I have decided to do my spoken word assessment on racism in football given recent events... But I'm looking for ideas in not to sure what my main aim will be have to give a 8 minute talk /presentation and as I'm 35 I'd love to do well and get better than a pass.

Yeah it's a gcse English night course I'm doing at college apparently it doesn't count towards the gcse but our tutor wants us to push for merit /distinction

Cool, I'm in Yr 11 and I did my GCSE spoken language assessment last term and I got a distinction, I think the easiest way to get a distinction is to choose a sophisticated topic which you have. Make sure that you've carefully planned your arguments before hand so you know exactly what you are going to say, and if you are going to read it word for word, I recommend writing it onto flashcards about A6 size so you don't have a large piece of paper flapping in front of you. Also practice it a lot so you know it really well, that way you can just use the flashcards to jog your memory while you are speaking so that you keep looking up at the camera, and stand up rather than sit while you are reading it out so you can hold your flashcards with one hard and gesture with the other. The most important thing while you are speaking is to take your time, it's really unlikely that you will speak too slowly and take a breath and few seconds break when you turn your flashcards over. If you do all of those things, you should get a distinction! Good luck!

I appreciate all those points thankyou, I was meaning more the content it's obviously controversial as a sophisticated but how can i ask rhetorical questions to make people think about how we can change or do things better if it's racist its wrong!

We did this in Year Nine and I got a Distinction
What you want to do is pick a subject you're really passionate about, and one that you'd be able to talk effortlessly about.
Plan a beginning, middle and end to your speech and make sure it all flows together. Using some kind of presentation in the background is also useful as it backs up your points further.
Make sure what you say impacts the audience, you want to get a reaction out of them. The more enthusiasm you have about the topic you are speaking about the better.
I hope that helpsss

if it were climate change, Brexit, abortion, purpose ofreligion in modern life - you could represent both sides of the debate a lot easier. with racism you can't exactly represent sides of the debate without siding with racists?

I suppose the controversy lies in whether the players were right to carry on playing and if they should have walked off in protest, and who decides how the team should react e.g. should it be up to the captain or should it be up to the direct victims of the racism (the non-white players), who is responsible for stopping this behaviour - UEFA, the police, etc, should there be sentences for the racial abusers and what should the sentence be, how do we stop this behaviour and why is it so prevalent among some European football fans.

I've just delivered my presentation and I had flash cards but because I read a lot from them and put the same info up on my presentation for the audience to read the teacher that filmed it said it's a very good presentation, but a merit as I read a lot from the cards. I can't help thinking if I had another go at it I could just put pictures up and talk without cards l... Is it worth asking the teacher to re assess me or shall I be content with a merit as it doesn't count towards my gcse? Ultimately id love to get on a degree course... Am I just gutted I didn't get a distinction or being silly as I got a merit? Any thoughts appreciated... I'm on an adult gcse course and haven't been at school in 19years so...
