Meeting Communication Proficiency Requirements for Teacher Certification through the Basic Course.
Willmington, S. Clay; And Others
The Communication Department at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh has made a direct response to the rule of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction that teacher preparation institutions recommend students for certification only after they have demonstrated proficiency in speaking and listening. Proficiency is demonstrated by certain key tasks completed by students enrolled in Communication 96-111, "Fundamentals of Speech Communication." Assessment instruments were developed and are used to assess knowledge of communication principles and performance in public speaking, interpersonal communication, and listening. The instruments are continually tested for their validity and reliability. (Contains 13 references, a handout outlining the specific requirements for an informative speech, a public speaking rating form, an interpersonal skills rating form, and a list of questions to assess interpersonal communication.)
