 * appealing to your audience's feelings through sharing your own  

 * researching in books, the Internet, and doing surveys around 
   school  to collect information, facts or examples to support what

    There is a real variety of topics- sustaining our ...
    * (local/personal)- health, school playground environment, 
       friendships, cultures /cultural awareness, zero waste
    * (NZ)- marine mammals
    * (Global)- forests (deforestation)
