Informative Speech Tips:
Pick a topic that is interesting to you, that you think will interest
your audience, and that your audience knows little about.
If you select a topic of some controversy, an informative speech would describe the various sides, or the pros and cons, but not move further to persuade the audience to feel a certain way
Reminder: you must conduct research on this topic, and have at least 4 sources in your bibliography.
(they are either overdone, more persuasive than informative or your audience is likely already informed)
