Career Communication: Directions for the Seventies. Proceedings of the Speech Communication Assn. Summer Conference (8th, Chicago, Ill., July 6-8, 1972).
Kennicott, Patrick Curtis, Ed.; Schuelke, L. David, Ed.
The 1972 summer conference of the Speech Communication Association explored the relationship between speech communication education and career preparation. The first section of the proceedings consists of addresses that describe and emphasize the career education programs sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education. The second section is a report of summaries of eight forums during which spokesmen from business, industry, and several professions discussed the role of speech communication in career fulfillment; each summary is accompanied by the report of the speech communication educator who presided over the forum. The third section consists of reports from implementation sessions in four areas: junior and senior high schools; community colleges; colleges and universities; and applied and basic research. The final section is focused on a summary of the deliberations and an assessment of their implications to the field of speech communication. (Author/RN)
