Every year, we take young people to the Houses of Parliament to deliver speeches on issues they care about.
The strongest speeches are always those that connect with the audience, not just through persuasive language but through feeling and conviction. For us, speechwriting is not just about using techniques but about discovering personal politics and how to voice them.
This pack is for teachers and facilitators, to help you support young people to write and edit speeches. The activities go with a video in which Alaz, a writer at Ministry of Stories, talks about how he wrote and delivered his speech.
