Informative Speech

Informative Speech

In this speech, students will have the opportunity to identify and research a commonly held but somewhat controversial belief (YOUR TOPIC MUST COME FROM THE TOPIC LIST PROVIDED AT THE END OF THIS RUBRIC) Through thorough research, you will come to one of three conclusions: that the “myth” is a) true b) false or c) future research is still needed. Students must complete three steps in the speech:

1) Show that the belief is held by a significant number of people. You might consider conducting a survey of your friends, or showing articles that have been written affirming the belief.

2) Research both sides of the claim. What is the evidence provided by the people or groups who affirm the belief? What is the evidence provided by those who contest the belief? AT LEAST ONE SOURCE MUST BE A SCHOLARLY SOURCE COMING FROM THE COLLEGE LIBRARY DATABASE. ALL SOURCES MUST BE CITED IN PROPER MLA FORMAT. Please use this website for help regarding MLA citations.

3) Evaluate the evidence on both sides and come to a conclusion based on that evidence.
