My list might include:
The world revolves around the sun
The NHS is awesome
Milk goes into tea last…not first
Star Trek is brilliant
Red Lucozade tastes much better than orange Lucozade
Choose one of the beliefs from the list you compiled and write a monologue/speech from the point of view of a character who passionately believes the opposite to you. Write the speech to argue against the belief that you hold. It is important that you try to genuinely put yourself in this character’s shoes, their beliefs should be valid to them and you should try to make them as believable as possible. You may want to think about:
- What has happened in your character’s life to make them believe this?
- Who is the speech directed at?
- What do they hope to achieve by getting their point across?
