    Do something you really do feel passionately about. Don't do something bog-standard like war or animal rights just because other people have. If you have strong opinions or feelings on the subject that you're doing then your delivery will be much better and articulate. Look into your interests, or even just do something completely random - my friend and I did the history of gingerbread I think, and it worked a charm

    for my gcse eng lang, i did my speech on "animal testing for medical research". everyone who had done animal testing before always shows picutres of cute animals that have been horribly harmed in some way.
    i knew i'd get loads of people (people had to ask questions afterwards) saying how cruel i was, etc, so i only dealt with medical research, AND did a quick "raise your hand if you've ever taken paracetamol, or had a vaccination".

    Do it on someone you admire.
    But you get marks for being controversial so say you admire Hitler.

    how about "testing drugs on gay anorexic foetuses"

    thats bound to be way controversial
    Not as controversial as if she used Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton as her case studies... :cool:

    I had to do this in year 10, ended up doing it on 'Home Science' which basically involved talking about/showing pictures/videos of me building a home made flame thrower, a 6ft long spud gun and examining the results of placing a 100g thermite charge on a steel plate in my back garden, teacher was very impressed and I got highest mark in the class. Obviously this was before 7/7 and the terrorist police took over though...

    Chose something with plenty of info on and obv your for and against.

    I once did a speech on how much footballers get paid. It was interesting. The person who won the competition spoke about Silence... I can't exactly remember what she said though...

    For my GCSE speaking and listening assignments I did "Anorexia and the Media" and "The use of Circus Animals".
    I realised how truly awful the treatment of circus animals really is half way through the presentation (despite all the research and typing!) and started crying. Oh the embarassment! Though I did get a very good mark for it, so that could be of use?
