What are some good topics for a "How-to" speech? Topic: How to write a good speech about myself
July 18, 2019 / By Sal
Question: I need to find 5 topics+possible visuals to go with each for a how-to speech. I know this sounds easy, i could just do how to make a sandwich, or how to play basketball, but its not that simple. It HAS to be three minutes, and it cant be something that everyone knows how to do (how to make a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich, how to make a smoothie, etc.). It needs to be interesting, 3 minutes worth of stuff to talk about, and something not everyone knows how to do. I need at least five topics. Please help! i need these topics by tomorrow :/ Also, I don't have many hobbies. I dont play sports or any instruments, and the only thing im good at is photography and dance, which i cant really write a speech on.

powerpoint is easier if you can How to finish your hw 1.set a deadline for time needed on computer or other activities 2. write things you have to do in number of importance, in an agenda 3. establish a good working enviroment, and eliminate all distractions! the basic neccesities are only a water bottle to refresh yourself, and a pencil with a eraser, .... 4. lastly tackle your work piece by piece, and sooner or later it's time to play some games! How to make a good first impression 1.good posture, and eye contact 2.introduce yourself first, but don't sound like an egomaniac! get to know the other as well, so you can plan what's next >:) 3.finally, just remember to tell the truth! And a firm handshake for a good measure, and a lasting impression! How to not look like such a slob 1.don't wear the same clothes everyday, inspect daily for tears or stains. 2.wash your face every morning to get rid of eye boogers. 3. gel or perfume in hair strangely makes you look or smell clean. at least it will mask that musky smell if you didn't shower. 4.lastly brush your teeth, i really hope you do? :o How to go to sleep 1.don't look at bright light aka computers or t.v. beforehand 2. do not drink or eat foods with caffeine 3. you can exercise a bit beforehand to get the energy out then fall on your bed in exhaustion or you can just get someone to knock you out. take sleeping pills or listen to Mr. OR Mrs,'s_____ lectures. :D you might even learn something -.- Lastly how to make a good presentation prepare good notes, not always on the slides, may even use flashcards! plant your feet on the ground shoulder width apart, practice this too! swerve your eyes on all parts of the audience alternate your voice power, high to low or excited to monotone to make it interesting! this is the perfect position! one hand out the other in pocket! sorry if the last one was bad, just thought it would fit, hope it helped!

The above comment is a huge list of stuff you can choose from! (Great job! :) ) Now that you have a list of ideas to choose from, you need to choose something that you are passionate about. Something that you really are deeply persuaded. That will be the BEST persuasive speech. If you try to persuade people about something you don't believe in yourself, then it won't help. Just find something that you are interested in and are very persuaded of, and then it will help you ALOT with speech writing and speech delivery. I had to do a persuasive speech for a competition, and I did it on "why parents should buy teenagers their first car", because it was something that I was struggling with at the time (something I was DEEPLY passionate and persuaded about). And I did very well on that speech! Not because I had it memorized, but because it was something that i was very passionate about, so I just felt like I was talking when I gave that speech! if you need help writing the speech, go to http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-give-a-spe...

- How to [insert dance here] - How to make Nilla Wafer banana and pudding sandwiches :3 - How to draw something (look on YouTube) ok I'm stuck. There's websites like (www.ehow.com) and (www.wikihow.com) that have a random button and show you different how-to's. Also. YouTube. just put "how to" in the search and there are a ton of videos.
