An expository speech objectively presents information about a topic. In this case, you will be presenting information about a specific element of the ethics of organ transplant. This should likely include:
- Medical facts about transplanting works in this situation
- The values to be considered when deciding what is ethical in this situation
- What current experts say about this topic
You will need to synthesize the ideas into one discussion. You should not treat each article in its own paragraph, as this will prohibit synthesis. You will be evaluated on how well you blend the ideas and how well you use your own words.
Include at least four sources. Two can be from class readings, but at least two should be from scholarly sources from academic journals (JAMA, for example, rather than Psychology Today). At least three of the four must be from outside class reading. At least one of these must suggest a counterargument (i.e. you must present at least two opposing points of view. This review will be evaluated primarily on how coherently and clearly information is presented, as well as on the organization and appropriate scope of your document.
This assignment is meant to help you use your own words. You should not use any of the original language in the summary, except for key terms. You should only quote in the response when you are directly discussing a specific point. Otherwise, quotation or any other form of the original language, except for key terms, will be missing the point of the assignment and will be graded accordingly.
This is a 5-minute speech. One page, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt font usually takes 2 minutes for an English speaker to read clearly.
