    Depending on if you are doing this as a high school assignment or a college assignment topics for a persuasive speech can be quite varied. At a college level you would want to pick topics that are more in depth and at a high school level you could probably get away with something that might apply to your school. The important thing is to be able to make a strong argument for/against whatever your topic is by providing information for both sides of the argument. Good luck!

    Topics:

    - School Dress Codes

    - Reality television as a positive or negative cultural phenomenon

    - Illegal music downloading

    - The effect of cell phones on society

    - The effect of iPods on society

    - Salary caps for professional athletes

    - Sports and steroid use

    - Funding issues for women's sports

    - Teen Parenthood

    - Ethics in School: Is cheating acceptable?

    - Marijuana: To legalize or not?

    - DNA database: Invasion of Privacy?
