Developing Communication Skills in Non-Committed Learners.
Brogden, J. D.
Designed to identify the major problems of the non-committed high school learner and to suggest specific, practical courses of action for the experienced educator, this book emphasizes the positive approach that everyone can improve if given feedback for his responses. Chapters are concerned with (1) identifying the non-committed learner; (2) the communication skills laboratory approach and steps for developing such a laboratory; (3) using tests as feedback and placement tools; (4) the importance of planning for innovation in goal achievement; (5) techniques effective in developing learning skills; (6) developing an effective sight-oral-silent perception program; (7) the development of composition, discourse, aural, and work processing perception skills, and (8) basic beliefs about the non-committed program. Appendices provide lists of tests, commercial companies that distribute materials useful to the communications instructor, and educational publishers of both hardback and paperback titles. (JM)
