Plagiarism, Part 4: Citing During a Speech

What's your source?

When you are giving a speech in class, you have two audiences: the instructor and the listening audience (usually your classmates). For the instructor, you will turn in a Works Cited page (also sometimes called Bibliography or References). Follow the information under Citing Papers & Projects when preparing your Works Cited page. For the listening audience, you will cite your sources orally during the speech. Not sure how to do that? Read on. 


After working through the section on Citing Speeches Orally, you should be able to:

  •  Cite your source orally during a speech.
  • Provide the proper context for the citation using transition words.
