Trends and Directions in Community College Speech.
Berko, Roy M.
In this paper the author discusses current practices in speech education courses taught on the junior college level. He examines specific problems that face speech educators who teach in public two-year colleges. The author attributes weakness of speech programs to: (1) inadequate facilities; (2) insufficient full-time staff; (3) oversized classes; (4) deficient number of elective classes; (5) limited number of speech courses; (6) little school-wide emphasis on speech; (7) overloaded teaching schedules; and (8) too few extracurricular activities. He suggests some possible solutions to these problems, which include: (1) development of positive instructor attitudes toward community college teaching, (2) freedom from restrictive procedures and policies, and (3) cultivation of a qualified teaching staff.
