Speech Communication and Values Clarification
Gurry, Joanne
The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship of one of the most celebrated areas of the humanistic education movement--values clarification--to some current emphases in secondary school speech communication education. Popular speech communication texts directly incorporate activities found in values clarification literature or encourage students to discover, develop, and act on their own values. Some of the humanistic goals, teaching methods, student learning activities, and evaluation procedures of both values clarification and interpersonal communication are examined. The major focus of this paper, then, is on a framework from which speech communication educators might consider the work of a related discipline, the impact of which is already noticeable in textbooks and teaching. It is concluded that in the speech communication classroom, values clarification activities can be used as motivational techniques and as methods for teaching interpersonal communication skills.
