Helping Students Find Informative and Persuasive Speech Sources on the Ebscohost Databases

As a speech teacher or communication faculty member,  you can definitely learn MANY things about the library databases for informative or persuasive speeches. One primary sticking point that I HAVE to incorporate in my speech assignments is for the students to utilize the library databases to find SIX (6) resources for their speeches.

This is a feat for our freshmen students and our senior-level students who decided to put off taking speech until their final semester at our university. Critical thinking is SO important for ALL students that I require them to learn how to use the library's databases to find relevant information for their speeches.


Check out my book - Retaining College Students Using Technology: A Guidebook for Student Affairs and Academic Affairs Professionals.

Remember to order copies for your team as well!
