You may use two types of evidence twice (i.e. two stats, two testimonies, and one example). All five pieces of evidence must not be the same type.
You must use researched based supporting material that comes from at least five (5) different published sources. Only two of your sources may come from the Internet (all or at least three must come from physical sources such as books, magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.). Wikipedia may not be used. For online sources consider using .org, .gov., or .edu sources. Make sure to check the validity of your sources.
Each piece of evidence you record must include the following: main point that the evidence is supporting, supporting evidence type, source(including date, page, title, publishing date, etc.), and quote or exact text you plan to use. **HELPFUL TIP: Make your quote or text EXACTLY what you want to use in your speech, do not record an entire article or lengthy paragraph that you plan to minimize later – this is the time to get exact and specific.
You must find and record five pieces of evidence using the types of evidence described in chapter 12 of our book.
Each piece of evidence you plan to use must include: speech topic, supporting material type, source (including date, page, journal or book title and anything else we’d need to know if we wanted to find it), quote (either an exact quote as you would use it in the speech or comprehensive notes in the case of materials like statistics,) and use (where in the speech you plan to use the material.)
You will record your evidence in this submission form in the following format:
Main point you are supporting (do not use “Main Point 1” – use: “Main Point 1: Types of Dogs” or “Main Point 2: Types of Cat Food” or “Main Point 2: Ingredients used in whole wheat bread”):

Source (use APA reference formatting):
