Developed as part of a high school quinmester unit on business speech, this guide provides the teacher with teaching strategies for a course designed to help people in the business world. The course covers the preparation and delivery of a speech and other business situations which require skill in speaking (sales techniques, committee and group discussion, conducting conferences and meetings, moderating programs, and oral reading of data, reports, and minutes of meetings) as well as the methods to use in the preparation of these forms of oral activities. Attention is also given to pronunciation and vocabulary to enable the student to use language which is clear, graphic, and persuasive. The range of content is divided into (1) recognition of the importance of oral communication; (2) practice of business etiquette and customs; (3) skills of salesmanship; and (4) participation in group speaking situations. The guide is arranged by performance objectives with the suggested teaching strategies listed under each objective. Appended is a list of student and teacher resources, including textbooks, reference materials, periodicals, and films. (HOD)
