Speaking-Listening Instruction for the Disadvantaged Junior College Student: Approaches Suggested by Higher Education Achievement Program Speaking-Listening Instructors, Winter 1974.
Amerson, Elaine M., Ed.
Four essays based on workshop presentations are provided as being representative of the approaches to teaching communications in Higher Education Achievement Program Speaking-Listening during the past three years. They suggest a range of activities and an evolving philosophy of accommodating the student entering a compensatory program at the college level. The articles are by the speech instructors at designated HEAP centers. The first essay, by Ethel Young, details a particularly successful activity at Meridian (Mississippi) Junior College, the use of the journal. The second essay, by Orlando Taylor of Delgado (New Orleans) Junior College, elaborates on the approach a speech instructor might take in organizing a year's course. The third article, by Elaine Amerson of Kennesaw (Georgia) Junior College, also suggests organizational possibilities within a particular approach. All agree that the emphasis of the program is to be student centered, and that its success depends heavily on a strong student/instructor relationship. In the final essay, Christa Carvajal discusses some ways to build better listening skills. (Author/DB)
