This bundle is great for high school students who are being introduced to public speaking, researching, and using credible sources. In this bundle you will find:
1. CRAP test source reliability worksheet
2. Informative speech assignment with rubrics and an individual reflection handout
3. Speech outline rubric
4. Speech performance rubric
The directions on the student handout are very detailed and allow for use with MLA or APA source citations. There is an example outline in this packet.
It's a good idea to discuss how to find credible sources and for students to do the examples on the provided handout. The speech assignment requires an outline reference list, and annotated sources. That means students need to print out articles they find and annotate for direct quotations and paraphrase information. I have found that collecting annotated sources helpful to mitigate plagiarism. The teacher will grade the outline draft and then students should get at least one more day to revise it and complete the visual aid before speaking begins. The question-answer session is optional.
