Your assignment notes that you are sharing "information with others to enhance their knowledge or understanding of concepts and ideas." First, you will need to make your topic interesting to your audience and rethink and challenge any preconceived ideas you had about it. Second, you will need to be able to explain a complex topic in a way that your audience understands.
In order to do this, you will need to include a minimum of 3 main points with strong supporting materials and appropriately use oral citations throughout your speech. This guide will assist you in locating credible sources that related to your specific topic.
Organize Your Thoughts with a Mind Map
Mind maps are a great tool to help you organize your thoughts and see new information or connections that you might not have previously been aware of. As you develop your mind map, narrow your topic down from a broad topic to a specific research question. You will use this research question, and the keywords you've identified on your mind map, to search the library databases for resources. As you utilize the research databases, continue to fill in information on your mind map to help you see if there are gaps in your research that you need to address.
