Speech Communication in the High School, MSA Curriculum Guide 3.
Herman, Deldee M., Ed.; Ratliffe, Sharon A., Ed.
This seven unit curriculum guide, a revision of the 1968 Michigan Speech Association guide (ED 026 390), is designed to provide individualized instruction for the high school student in speech communication skills. The authors develop each unit by first asking important questions about the subject and the student and then suggesting a variety of possible methods the teacher can use to help his students discover answers. This guide places emphasis on student-oriented learning situations and recommends that the teacher incorporate situations for discussion that are part of the experiences. The units include: listening and thinking, interpersonal communication, language, public speaking, oral interpretation discussion, and parliamentary procedure. In addition to the unit bibliography and lists of supplementary materials accompanying each unit, a list of general objectives and four appendices--description of group membership roles, sample case problems, brain teasers, and a sample discussion evaluation form--are also included in the guide.
