Assignment description and sample topics:
Public Speaking - Cultural Informative Research Speech Assignment

The assignment requires students to research a culture where they are not a
member and deliver an informative speech.

(You have a few librarians very familiar with this assignment. I always
provide a copy of the assignment prior to the library session.)

Students will be able to (check all that apply):
- Develop a search strategy based on their research topics (15 minutes)
- Construct a query for journal, magazine, or newspaper articles and
evaluate best choices in the results list (25 minutes)
Other notes: I generally think it's best to explain assignment and let the
librarian fine tune what she (or he) thinks is best for the class.
