Communication Is Getting It Together.
Halliday, Mina Gail
A major concern of educators in Illinois and elsewhere is that students be given the opportunity to master the basic skills of reading, communication, computation, and problem solving. It is important for school districts to recognize this concern on a local level by including in the program plan for their districts student goals which mention skills in critical thinking, listening, speaking, creative or leisure time pursuits, responsible communication in our democracy, and the awareness of self-importance in human relations. These skills should begin to be developed in the elementary and middle school and continue through high school and beyond. As part of the language arts program in Illinois schools, speech/theatre courses can effectively help meet educational goals established by the districts and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The speech/theatre discipline can be effective and timely to present and future educational goals as well as create skills and attitudes that relate to all other learning areas. (SW)
