Why Should a Speech-Communication Teacher Choose to Teach in High School.
Metcalf, Marguerite Pearce
High school teaching is a fertile and unexplored field for speech communication educators. Speech communication courses and teachers are needed in high schools because the nature of their training is broad and interdisciplinary and equips them to render unique and essential services at the secondary level. High school speech teachers are faced with the challenge of designing courses and textbooks which meet the needs of the uncomfortable and self-conscious adolescent, the black who uses dialect and must become bilingual, the career oriented, and the gifted. There is valid evidence to support the inclusion of speech communication courses, taught by specialists in the field, in high school curricula. (EE)
