The One-Point Speech as a Unit in Speech Communication and Editorial Response to "Unit Plan--One-Point Speech."
Floren, Ric; Upshaw, Jack
The Communicator, v4 n1 p8-15 Winter 1973
Basic to the process of effective communication are the elements of practice and understanding. This paper proposes using a 9- to 10-lesson unit employing the one-point speech as a vehicle for practice prior to a longer, more involved activity. The advantages to this approach are that the student is initiated without being overwhelmed, the skills necessary are transitional and utilitarian, and it is a good point at which to demonstrate for the student the usefulness in communication of careful topic selection and subject matter limitation. An outline for this type of one-point lesson provides material sources, objectives, activities, and a unit plan. (TS)
