Mrs. Liz Schroeder COM 231/0002 Topic Selection Sheet- Informative Speech 1. Name three things you know about or want to learn more about. Gun control, Climate change, and locating black holes 2. Why do you think your audience will care about these three topics? Gun control is a highly polarized topic in which common ground is very hard to find. Both parties have strong arguments are feel passionately and nearly everyone falls into 1 of 2 main groups. This makes it easily related to nearly all audiences. Climate change has been a very recent hot button; pun intended. Again, it is polarizing but the usually it’s through the spread of misinformation or cherry-picked research. Audience members may care about this because due to the potentially devastating impact climate change may have over the next century. Locating black holes, as a discussion within astrophysics, may be exciting to only a select audience that is particularly interested in space exploration and that genre. It may peak interest in those unaware, exposing them to something new and potentially exciting.
