9th Grade Speech Research

Research guide for the 8th grade spring research project.


When you are beginning research on a controversial topic, databases are a good place to start, as they weed out sources that suffer from extreme bias. The databases will allow you to consult balanced sources that will help you develop a good understanding of your topic. Then when you begin to consult sources on the web, you'll have a base of knowledge that will allow you to evaluate the quality of those sources more accurately. You are required to have at least 6 articles from the school databases for your speech.
