[Teachers instructions with example] "For our informative Speech, let's build on our topic and complete some basic research. For instance: I want to build on my initial speech on tennis, so I may decide to now speak about the French Open and Naomi Osaka's decision to pull out of the tournament. This relies on some of my knowledge of the sport AND on some basic research (reading credible news sources and watching press videos of athletes' reactions). I will use both to put together a focused and organized speech with you, my audience, in mind. This may mean sharing some basic information on the French Open, background on Osaka, and then information from my research to inform the class on her decision, fall out, impact, etc. Sourced information must be noted clearly in the speech and/or can be clearly documented in a slide if you use a presentation tool. This speech will run 6-8 minutes.
