Topical breakdown

Another way you can structure an informative oral is to break it up into major subtopics or categories. For instance, an oral on dinosaurs might be split into sections on the following subtopics:

  • The world when dinosaurs lived.

  • Types of dinosaurs.

  • Typical life cycle of a dinosaur.

  • Evolution and extinction of dinosaurs.

The idea is that each section of your oral concentrates on one particular aspect of the overall topic.

Topical breakdown

How you break up the major topic depends on what type of topic it is. If it’s a product or a thing, you might break up your oral by discussing different functions or parts of the thing. If you’re discussing a social or political issue, you might create the subtopics from different viewpoints or stances on the issue.
