STC 135 - Kimura

How to use this guide

This research guide is for students in Dr. Keisuke Kimura's STC 135 class working on the Informative Speech (see page 8 of the syllabus). It is arranged by the three possible approaches you can take: Miami University-specific research, communication research, or research from your major/minor discipline. If you are unsure if your topic will be appropriate, please ask Dr. Kimura. Reach out to me, Mark Shores, if you're having trouble finding sources. Use the blue "Email Me" button beneath my picture.
