Tedford, Thomas L., Ed.
This book is a collection of syllabi, attitude surveys, and essays relating to free-speech issues, compiled by the Committee on Freedom of Seech of the Speech Communication Association. The collection begins with a rationale for the inclusion of a course on free speech in the college curriculum. Three syllabi with bibliographies present guides for courses on the social influence of speech, intellectual freedom and censorship, and freedom and responsibilities of speech. The results of two surveys of student attitudes about free-speech issues are reported. The essays are concerned with current symbolic behavior such as free expression, government control of information, haircuts and school expulsion, and Supreme Court decisions in the 1969-70 term relatin to the First Amendment. The book ends with a bibliography of articles, books, and court decisions on free speech from July 1969 to June 1970. (RN)
