This monograph outlines a course in the study of nonverbal or graphic symbols in communication, of language as symbols and of symbols within language. Performance objectives for the students are: (1) giving examples of the use of nonverbal and/or graphic communication symbols; (2) deducing that people assign different meanings to the same work and confuse the symbol with reality; (3) interpreting the role of figurative language in communication; and (4) analyzing symbolic elements in language and the confusion of symbol with reality. The rationale for the course is that, since many people tend to confuse symbols with reality, study of both verbal and nonverbal symbols may lead to clearer communication. Numerous teaching strategies for each of the performance objectives are supplemented with a bibliography of student and teacher resources: textbooks, Dade County films, rental films, filmstrips, records, slide-tapes, audio-tapes, transparencies, contemporary films, professional books, and periodicals.
