So for my Speech & Debate Class, each student has been assigned to persuade our class to "alter the audience's opinion of a philosophy or commitment." It only has to be 3-7 minutes with a poster/video presentation.
I decided that my subject was going to be "Listening to Music at a Lower Volume."
My current 3 speaking points are:
- Listening to Music At High Volumes Damages Hearing
- Causes You to Be Oblivious to the Outside World
- Inappropriate Etiquette (others can hear your music, people talking to you but you can't hear them, etc.)
Can anyone offer me any advice or better speaking points to use? The first bullet point is obvious and will probably take up most of the time, but the 2nd and especially the 3rd topic aren't as strong as the first...
I also thought about pairing a cheap pair of earbuds with a headphone amplifier to show the class how loud their personal media players could get... Not sure if I'm going to go through with it because I don't want the drivers to burst while I'm demonstrating the loudness.
