Communication: Speaking and Listening; A Communication Skills Curriculum and Interdisciplinary Resource Guide for Junior High Schools.
Pearson, Eloise V., Ed.
This five-unit junior high school speech communication curriculum guide is designed to provide seventh, eighth and ninth graders with an introductory course in speech-communication. Presupposing that communication or speech is a regularly scheduled subject in the junior high school, the outlined course requires at least one semester of academic study. The total communication process is emphasized as both a process for learning and work as well as for pleasure. The five units address the communication problems and strategies posed by the mass electronic media; the symbolic nature of language; the student's role as a receiver and producer of messages; the elements, relationships and variables affecting the communication process; small group problem-solving; and large group communication. Skill development oriented, each unit contains behavioral objectives, criteria for evaluating learning, and activities and materials sections. (Author/LG)
