Homework for next week:

Dec 3-6, 2007

(Hopefully some will have it ready on Monday, but others can present their speech in the course of the week)

1) You are an American politician and give a short speech of three to five minutes in Congress or the Senate or on the campaign trail.

2) You can choose your own topic, but you could choose from the topics we dealt with in class: e. g. a law to enable or prevent embryonic research, or you speak in favour of measures in America against climate change, or financial aid from the government for co-dependents for their important contribution to society, or you support GWB in his attempt to be reelected in 2004. (Something like the Arnold Schwarzenegger speech.)

3) Don't just read your speech word by word from your paper, but speak freely, with enthusiasm, use some rhetorical devices, maybe even use background support. Get our attention.
