Communication Department Courses of Study: Non-Graded Mini Courses, Grades 10, 11, 12.
Charleroi Area Junior-Senior High School, PA.
This volume represents the joint efforts of high school students and teachers in speech, English, and drama at Charleroi Area Senior High School. The merging of these three interdependent areas has resulted in the creation of a new Communication Department through which students are offered an opportunity to maximize their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Total communication is stressed through the development of sound foundations in oracy and literature. This student-centered curriculum consists of 33 nine-week nongraded mini-courses grouped under four divisions--literature, speaking, theatre, and writing. Students are responsible for selecting at least four mini-courses each year. If the students' schedules permit, they are allowed to elect additional courses. All tenth graders are required to take the basic oral communication course and any one of three written communication courses. Each of the 33 mini-courses includes general goals, specific objectives, content descriptions, learning experiences, evaluative criteria, and a bibliography. (LG)
