Guidelines for Speech Communication and Theatre Programs in Teacher Education.
Speech Communication Association, New York, NY.
The recommendations outlined in this paper were designed for preparing specialists in speech communication and in theater as well as for preparing communication and theater components in all teacher education programs. Two objectives are outlined: (1) the development of the prospective teacher's own communication and performance competencies in order to facilitate learning, and (2) the development of communication and performance competencies in pupils. Part 1, "Basic Programs," is divided into five topics: curricula for basic programs; faculty for basic programs; students in basic programs; resources and facilities for basic programs; and evaluation, program review, and planning. The topics discussed include the design of curricula, the general studies component, the professional studies component, humanistic and behavioral studies, competence and utilization of faculty, faculty involvement with schools, admission to basic programs, counseling and advising for students in basic programs, materials for basic programs, evaluation of graduates, and use of evaluation results to improve basic programs. Part 2, "Advanced Programs," is divided into the same topics and similar points are discussed for the advanced level. (TS)
