A Self-Instructional System in Speech.
Greene, Mark M.; And Others
A brief description, analysis, and history of a self-instructional system to teach high school students the basic skills used in public speaking is presented. Instructional procedures in the system generally follow a two-step sequence: the student first views a film and then either a) progresses through a corresponding unit of programed material or b) performs an activity related to the film. Student performance is evaluated by the instructor/manager in accordance with a set of criteria which are included in the system. The system criteria are summarized on the composite evaluation sheet, included here. The sheet is used by the instructor/manager to record student achievement. Achievement data available from laboratory and field tests indicate that students demonstrate substantial gains in knowledge through use of the system. Attitudes of students and teachers towards the system were found to be positive. (Programed material is not included in this booklet.) (JK)
