Teaching Speaking and Listening Skills in the Elementary and Secondary School. Resources for Schools #19.
Brown, Kenneth L.; And Others
Intended for use by teachers, school administrators, curriculum designers, and others as they begin to organize and define oral communication instruction within their schools, this guide provides a framework from which to develop instructional programs that will produce effective speakers and listeners. The first section of the guide reviews the skills students must learn to communicate effectively and outlines the school's role in developing those skills. The second section focuses on how instruction can be organized both informally and formally, while the third section describes "promising practices" observed in a variety of elementary and secondary school classrooms in Massachusetts. The fourth section provides an annotated list of over 100 books and other materials to help educators develop their own curricula and activities for teaching basic speaking and listening skills. (FL)
