the week after the bibliography and the outline) are done with the same topic.
Please see your weekly course schedule for required readings.
Then submit a full sentence outline for the informative speech. The etext shares
examples. However, there are times I ask for more or less main point
development/support. Please pay attention to detail and don’t just plan to copy the

three levels (supporting ideas) deep.

outline symbols discussed.
Label the main ideas with capital roman numerals. Note: you may see an example
