Multicultural Speech Project

For this project, you will present a four-minute speech, without props, to your class from one of the Multicultural Speaking Competition topics: When does a migrant become an Australian? Asylum Seekers Peace and Harmony Getting a multicultural education Many languages, one land Religion Connecting communities The same but different Un-Australian Racist jokes arent funny The content of your speech should show your research by focussing on: demonstrating an understanding of what multiculturalism is in Australia; and how multiculturalism impacts on 21st Century Australia through your topic choice. To be persuasive, your speech needs to have: a clear opening statement that introduces your point of view; arguments supporting your opening statement that are backed by evidence; and a conclusion that re-emphasises your point of view. Your speech needs to have: a clear, organised and logical flow (you can use palm cards) that sticks to the time limit; a balance of personal opinion and researched information; a balance of humour and sincerity; and delivered in a relaxed, clear and confident manner.
