Through a State-Wide Educational Consultancy Service.
Lutz, Jeanne M.
Two programs have been developed in Pennsylvania to provide opportunities for and guidance in the development of speech communication curricula. The State Consultancy Service, established in 1964, first used volunteer consultant authorities to initiate speech education programs in school curricula or to suggest methods for improving existing programs. At no time has there been an attempt to establish a state prescribed syllabus or curriculum, although the program has operated under the supervision of the state's Department of Public Instruction. The second program developed from a Title III grant funded in 1968 with the objective of developing speech education programs that are adaptable to a variety of school situations, depending on population, schedules, and educational philosophies. The curricula are formulated in terms of behavioral objectives and thus can be used in programs ranging from mini-courses to two-semester courses. One result of these programs is that the Pennsylvania Department of Education now employs a full-time speech advisor. (RN)
