Web resources for informative speech assignment
At the class web site I provide several links to help students get started with research and organization of their birthday speeches.
Where to start research for birthday speech:
- Go to birth year and search for date on list
- Summary of content covered on evening news programs from 1968 on. You will need to register to see full lists, but registration is free
- Click on year of birth, then use yellow box at left to check for celebrity births, deaths, marriages, movie premieres, etc.
- Links to several historical sites that can be searched by date
