I have to do an outline for a speech! These are the Topics I have chosen for my Informative Speech:
1. Serial Killers: I believe that the public loves serial killers for a number of interrelated reasons. First, they are rare in the business of murder with perhaps 25 or so operating at any given time in the U.S. They and their crimes are exotic and tantalizing to people much like traffic accidents and natural disasters. Serial killers are so extreme in their brutality and so seemingly unnatural in their behavior that people are drawn to them out of intense curiosity.
2. Internet Dating: Online Dating (also known as Internet dating) is a way for people to find and contact each other through the Internet to arrange a date, usually with the goal of developing a personal and romantic relationship. Online dating is one of many approaches to meeting people, but it’s not the only one. If you’re single and involved in social activities that give you the opportunity to meet people you’re less likely to find a need for online dating to get a date, but online dating does expand the available options for you to be matched with a potential date so don’t rule it out.
3. Street Gangs: Consumers of popular lore and many adherents to contemporary sociological thinking believe that affiliation with a street gang is motivated, in part, by a desire to belong to the family the individual never had while growing up. Ostensibly, the gang offers support, sustenance, acceptance, and a structure that the youngster lacked at home. Gangs offer a hierarchy of leadership and a path of approval and success. In a highly structured gang, one can “earn” one’s way and gain a sense of belonging, status, and power. Sociological determinists have contended that gang membership constitutes an understandable, even “normal,” means of adapting to circumstances that are bleak, if not seemingly hopeless. If this were true, everyone who lives in an impoverished, decaying, and otherwise brutal environment would join gangs. Gangs offer power, control, and excitement. The primitive rites of initiation, the violence, the drugs are hardly to be equated with the nurturance and stability a real family offers. For many who lack such a family during their childhood, they struggle to educate themselves, acquire skills, and work to perhaps one day have the sort of stable, nurturing family that they missed.
4. Street Art: Street art is art created on surfaces in public places like sidewalks, exterior building walls, and highway overpasses. Street art tends to happen in urban areas, and yes, it’s connected in certain ways to graffiti. Street art is usually created as a means to convey a message connected to political ideas, social commentary, or confrontation. Now, not all street art involves painting. It can be done with stickers spread over surfaces or by methods like yarn bombing, a process where artists cover things like trees and telephone poles with knitting and colorful fibers. Street art can also be done with stencils, where the creator repeats the image all over a surface to make a statement. All cared passionately about the work they made and agreed on its essential component Creating. No matter whether their style was fluid or detailed, their process organic or planned, all the artists had mastered their materials and had a preferred medium to work in, whether paint, collage, silk screen, or spray cans. They each were thus able to allow the bulk of their energy to go into artistic expression rather than mastering a technique. They all valued expanding their repertoire but also had an internal aesthetic. They also knew that they needed to make art, that doing so was an essential part of who they were. Finally, every one of them shared a commitment to music and movement as well as to graphic art. An alternate source of expression could bring them joy, inspiration or respite when the creative process got stuck.
