This is your first research based speech. You will develop a seven- to nine-minute speech designed to share your research of an area of personal interest. You are the instructor and are going to teach us something about an event, a current controversy, a technological development, cultural custom, or a field of study, etc. You have the option to deliver these in groups of two-three, so that there is the possibility of a more in-depth discussion. However, you will be graded individually. One person’s speech will be graded entirely independently of the others. Each group member will have to speak for the five to seven minutes.
