A Curriculum Guide for Speech Communication--Grades 8-12.
Brilhart, Barbara L., Comp.
This curriculum guide is a result of a graduate seminar in improvement of speech instruction given in 1971 at the University of Nebraska (Omaha). It is designed primarily for a full-year high school course, but individual sections can be used for a semester course or units. The aim of the curriculum is to integrate new approaches in communication education with behavioral objectives. Major subject areas are: interpersonal and dyadic communication; small-group communication; the "one-to-many" types of communication (including extemporaneous speaking, forensics, oral interpretation, and dramatic arts); and mass media. Each section contains one or more units of general objectives, behavioral objectives that support the general objectives, procedures for attaining the objectives, the major concepts to be emphasized, and suggested evaluation procedures. Bibliographies and resource lists are also included. (Author/RN)
