    Brainstorm for next assignment: Create TED Talk of your own

    Your talk must be solution based. You can spend some time giving a brief background for the issue, but your focus should be a solution and why that is an appropriate solution. You must cite sources in your talk, as the examples you have watched did. You must also mention the name of your documentary. Your talk should be 5-10 minutes. You will record yourself giving this talk. We will watch these in class. 

    Think about what worked and what didn’t work in the TED talks you have watched. Sometimes there is humor. Usually a personal story is related as well.
