Your proposed topic Your topic should be clearly identified in the first sentence of part 1 of your post. That means you need to tell me what problem you think needs to be solved.

Most importantly, make certain that you include: the problem to be solved (that’s your topic!), who disagrees about your topic, and what makes this problem urgent (something that needs to be solved right away)? What or who will be harmed if we do not solve this problem? 2. An informative speech thesis (a claim of fact) related to the topic you selected in step 1 Your informative thesis should be one, clear, declarative sentence.
