Problem-Cause-Solution Speech

This format allows students to dissect an identified PROBLEM by exploring the possible CAUSES to why the PROBLEM exists. After that, the student must then identify a SOLUTION for each the CAUSES. Remember, the student must SOLVE the CAUSE, not the PROBLEM itself. For example:

Problem: Not enough people wear their seatbelts.
Cause 1: Seatbelt laws are too weak.
Cause 2: People have misconceptions about seatbelts.
Solution 1: We need stricter seatbelt laws.
Solution 2: We must educate the public about seatbelt facts.

Please use the following format to generate and critique ideas.
