Discussion and Argumentation-Debate in the Secondary School. Michigan Speech Association Curriculum Guide Series, No. 3.
Herman, Deldee; And Others
This curriculum guide, dealing with the complementary high school subjects of discussion and argumentation-debate, is "an attempt to provide meaningful involvement that will equip students with the ability and the motivation to adapt to as well as innovate change." Six units on discussion cover the dialogue, the panel, the symposium, discussion as social interaction, reasoning, and the gathering and analyzing of data. Eight units on argumentation-debate explore the nature of debate; preparation for debates; analysis of propositions; the processes of speaking, refuting, and cross-examining in debate; and, for the teacher, methods of coaching debate. Each unit contains a statement of lesson objectives, an outline of lesson content, suggested learning experiences, and a bibliography. In addition, certain units provide lists of audiovisual materials and rating scales for evaluating speakers. (JS)
