At the community college I attend, a public speaking class is required in order to receive your AA degree. One of the required speeches is an informative speech in which you inform/teach the class something of your choosing. I couldn't put together a speech on hunting without coming across as persuasive, which for this speech is not the goal- the persuasive speech is the last one. So I thought why not trapping? My three "parts" of the speech would be the history of trapping, how it is done today, and the impact of trapping. So that's what I did :mrgreen: Might even change how some of my classmates view trapping for the better ;--)

Good deal. How did it go? Or how was it received by your classmates?

Well it went alright I guess :roll: Unfortunately I wasn't as prepared as I thought I was, so I know I could have done better :? And I was limited to 5 minutes so I couldn't get as detailed as I wanted to. A visual aid was required for this presentation, so I used pictures of traps to explain how they worked and such. I guess a few girls weren't expecting there to be animals in the traps, so there was a gasp or two :roll:

We have to give one more speech (this time persuasive) so Im probably going to talk about hunting and trapping again.
