Speech 101: Home

Using this Guide

This guide is here to help you develop and research topics for your Speech 101 class assignments. The tabs along the top of the page link to information about narrowing topics, finding supporting points, and identifying the different kinds of sources you will be expected to use. 

If the information you need is not here, librarians are always happy to talk with you and answer any questions. You can stop by the front desk in the library, use the instant chat box in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, email us, or give a call. We are here to help!
