Presenting Your Opinion
This assignment will give you the opportunity to research a societal problem
that you find interesting. By researching the problem, you will collect information
that can support a personal decision about where you stand on the issue.
You will then communicate the information and conclusions you have reached
to your teacher during a telephone conference.
For example, if you research the problem of violent crimes in Sweden,
think about the following suggestions:
- What is your personal opinion about which punishment is most effective and
- How big a problem is this issue?
- Who is affected?
- Would you support legalization of the death penalty for such
- How can society reduce criminality?
Make the preparations for this presentation as if it were a speech to be presented
before an audience. There is a lot of useful information about making presentations
in the resource section called Making
. Making your presentation
on the telephone cannot be compared to making a presentation in front of an
audience, but there are things that are relevant in both situations. Begin
by reading through the sections on structure
You will be graded on how well you are able to structure your argument and
express you personal opinions about the issue.
Before your telephone conference send an outline of your presentation to
your teacher. The outline should follow the structure presented in the structure
section mentioned above and include keywords that you need for your presentation.
