Spoken English.
Sansom, Clive
Opinion, v13 n1 p39-45 May 1969
A number of conscious and unconscious objections (e.g., "Speech instruction should be given in the home," and "spoken English should be taught incidentally in all lessons.") have contributed to the present neglect of spoken language in secondary education. We must realize that, in order to be effective, speech must be taught systematically in a continuous, graded program throughout the secondary school. Such a program should be based on a syllabus covering every year of the pupil's school life; it should concentrate on the everyday use of speech instead of public entertainment (e.g., group discussion and impromptu talks instead of "The Annual Play"); it should provide for grading on specific tests and classwork; and it should include advanced studies.
