The Civic Awareness and Imagination Assignment
Engen, David E.
Communication Teacher, v19 n3 p80-83 Jul 2005

Too often, however, this connection remains indirect at best and lost in a sea of uninspired topic selections and convenient source cites at worst. This assignment offers one way to help public speaking students increase their civic awareness and imagination while also improving their speaking skills.
