4. Why do you consider this source to be credible? There’s no right or wrong answer to this question, but you must be specific. Writing “because it sounds good” or something equally vague and non-descriptive is not acceptable. If you don’t consider the source to be credible but feel the information is acceptable, please explain why. Basic Format and Content Requirements: This assignment should be at least one full page long , and no more than two pages. This refers to content, not the amount of paper used. The research assignment should be typed and printed on standard paper (as discussed in class and on the syllabus). It does not require a title page, but you must have your name printed (not hand written) at the top of the assignment or you may not receive credit. Use standard indentation for all paragraphs. Double-space only to distinguish one discussion on a source from another; single space everything else. Fonts should be legible and written in 12 point size (Times New Roman is preferred). Margins, including the top and the bottom, will be measured. Every trick you can possibly conceive to make the assignment look

longer than it actually is has been seen several times by every single professor and instructor at this university. The Concept Speech (First Speech) The Concept Speech is a short, introductory speech incorporating many of the elements of speech creation. It is preceded by a Topic Research Assignment (20 points, described above) and a first draft (10 points) that will be due on the speech workshop day. Please read this carefully. Basic Specifications: Time Limit: 2 to 4 minutes. Practice for three minutes; this will give a minute of leeway if you end up speaking faster or slower than expected. There will be a penalty of two points for every fifteen seconds over or under the time limit. The speech that runs for 1:47 or 4:12 loses two points; the speech that runs for 1:39 or 4:23 loses four points; the speech that runs for 1:21 or 4:40 loses six points; and so forth. This reflects real-life speaking fairly well—there’s always going to be a time limit on any sort of public speaking, and going over or under on time does cause problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
