A Resource Curriculum in Interpersonal Communication.
Cimperman, Ruth M.; Barnes, Richard E.
The nine units in this guide are intended to assist educators in utilizing the best available sources for curriculum planning and classroom instruction of communication concepts for the adolescent. The format is uniform: each unit begins with an introductory statement followed by a list of instructional objectives, a content outline, suggestions for learning activities and instructional assessment, and a list of references and materials for the teacher. The units are based upon the developmental level of the adolescent and the context influences that have a strong force at that state of the adolescent's life, namely family and peers. Specific topics covered in the units are: the bases of communication, intrapersonal communication, interpersonal perception, semantics and communication, listening, nonverbal communication, small group communication, family communication, and peer relationships.
