SPEECH AND DRAMA, A GUIDE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN COLORADO.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
COMMUNICATION -- THE PROCESSES OF SPEAKING, THINKING, WRITING, READING, AND LISTENING -- REPRESENTS A MAJOR PART OF THE MEANS AND GOALS OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESS. COURSES IN SPEECH AND DRAMATICS SHOULD BE BASIC TO A STUDENT'S PROGRAM. THE COMPONENTS OF ANY GOOD SPEECH PROGRAM INCLUDE BODILY ACTION, DISCUSSION, DEBATE, LISTENING, ORAL INTERPRETATION, PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE, PUBLIC SPEAKING, VOICE, AND DICTION. RADIO AND TELEVISION SHOULD BE EMPHASIZED SO THAT THE STUDENT CAN DEVELOP SKILLS IN PRESENTING HIS IDEAS, IN EVALUATING THE IDEAS OF OTHERS, IN RESEARCHING AND ORGANIZING NEW MATERIAL, AND IN UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF TOTAL SPEECH PERSONALITY. COURSES IN DRAMATICS DEVELOP THE STUDENT AS A CRITICAL VIEWER OF DRAMA, COMPLEMENT HIS WORK IN SUCH COURSES AS HISTORY, LITERATURE, AND PSYCHOLOGY, STIMULATE HIS CREATIVE ABILITIES AND IMAGINATION, AND BUILD HIS SELF-CONFIDENCE. INCLUDED IS A GUIDE FOR PROGRAMS AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. A DETAILED OUTLINE IS GIVEN INCLUDING GENERAL AND SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES, SUBJECT MATTER, PROCEDURES, ACTIVITIES, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY.
