This volume on the Tri-University project contains three reports on the teaching of oracy. The chairman of the committee on oracy, Laura Chase, offers suggestions for the preservice and inservice training of teachers to prepare them to deal with discussion, the individual talk, oral reading, and dramatic role playing. She outlines a teacher education program which joins course content and practicum in three blocks: (1) the study of the biological bases of language and its further development in terms of cognitive and linguistic levels, (2) specific preparation in language stimulation, and (3) instruction in discussion, making talks, reading aloud, group reading, and drama. A bibliography for each block of study is included. Lillian Broome states that, through good example and a knowledge of the listening act and skills in varied situations, teachers can help students become the best possible kind of audience. Pat Gardner shows how participation in encounter groups or sensitivity training can benefit the teacher of oracy. Lists of references are provided for each report. (DD)
