"I have dreams about those shoes. Black high-tops. Two white stripes." All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. But Jeremy’s grandma tells him they don’t have room for "want," just "need," and what Jeremy needs are new boots for winter.
This book we read today has many layers of meaning besides just connecting with our poverty unit. Jeremy's actions at the end have a huge impact on his classmate.

Think about an interesting topic for a speech. Avoid topics that most people already know a lot about e.g. smoking, gerbils. You may want to do some research to find a topic. Find something interesting e.g. Why do stars twinkle? Toothpaste. Genetically modified food. It may be that you want to write/speak about the person who inspires you.
