What you should learn:

  • Become a better consumer of information
    • Identify the types of supporting material (the guts of your speech)
    • Find and evaluate the usefulness of supporting material
    • Learn how to evaluate web sites
  • Cite your sources
    • Oral citations

    • Full citation on a reference sheet
