In a well-structured one-minute speech, you will present additional information on one of Solnit’s historical examples we listed on our first day of class. This is simply an informative speech, so you won’t need to present an argument or analysis, but you must present clearly articulated information on your topic. You must also give oral citations for all your research material. For most people, it will make sense to introduce Solnit at the beginning of the speech to set the context for why you’re talking about the Arab Spring, or the Triangle Trade, or Charles Black, etc.
Therefore, tonight’s homework is to begin researching your topic. Come on Wednesday with at least three credible sources at your fingertips for discussion.
Finally, everything depends on you bringing your map to class on Wednesday, so please remember!
