SPEECH IMPROVEMENT FOR THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. A CURRICULUM RESOURCE BULLETIN.
TABORN, MARION; AND OTHERS
THE CHILD WITH NO SPEECH HANDICAPS NEEDS TRAINING IF HE IS TO DEVELOP A SPEECH PATTERN WHICH IS AN ASSET RATHER THAN A LIABILITY. THE REGULAR CLASSROOM TEACHING MUST BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE INSTRUCTION IN CORRECT SPEAKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES. THE CURRICULUM SHOULD PROVIDE FOR INSTRUCTION IN THE BASIC ATTITUDES AND ABILITIES INHERENT IN SPEECH SKILLS. SYSTEMATIC INSTRUCTION IN SPEECH CAN BE CORRELATED WITH OTHER SUBJECTS SUCH AS ARITHMETIC, SCIENCE, HEALTH, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, SOCIAL STUDIES, MUSIC, AND ART. CURRICULUM PLANNING CAN INCLUDE TALKS ABOUT SOUNDS, GROUP DISCUSSIONS, PROBLEM-SOLVING SESSIONS, PANEL DISCUSSIONS, AND PRACTICE IN PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE. FOR MAXIMAL EFFECTIVENESS THE TEACHER MUST GIVE CAREFUL CONSIDERATION TO HIS OWN VOICE USE, ARTICULATION, ENUNCIATION, AND PRONUNICATION AS WELL AS TO THAT OF HIS PUPILS'. ORAL READING, CHORAL SPEAKING, AND DRAMATIC PRODUCTIONS ARE ESPECIALLY ADAPTABLE TO INSTRUCTION IN PROPER SPEECH TECHNIQUES. A FIFTY-FOUR ITEM ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY, APPENDIXES CONTAINING SOUNDS OF ENGLISH, INFORMAL DRAMATICS SUGGESTIONS, AND A LIST OF SPEECH GAMES ARE INCLUDED.
