Notes can be used, but not reading from a script.

Presentation topics

  5. Struggling industries employing large numbers of people should be saved by governments even if they are no longer profitable.
  6. Should high-school students be allowed an input into what they learn at school?
  7. Should celebrities have to live in a way to set a good example to their fans or should be able live their lives as they want?
  8. Is becoming a vegan an answer to helping the environment?
  9. Slum / ghetto tourism is essentially visiting a zoo of poor people and does not show respect to fellow citizens.
  10. Trade barriers help protect companies and workers in each country and have many other benefits.
