A Communi-site-ed Approach to Basic Speech in College.
Romano, Beatrice M.
A communi-site -ed approach to speech fundamentals attempts to teach speech communication in interpersonal situations and to alert students to the importance of retaining democratic principles in a society which is pluralistic. It is assumed that college students need and desire the kind of learning whereby theory becomes functional in their lives. This approach engages students in the problem-solving process using a problem extant in their own community. A practical solution is explored and, finally, implemented in the community. The addition of such a project to the conventional teaching routines of lecturing and speechmaking will tend to encourage motivation, enhance communication skills, and develop stronger ties between classroom and community. A further expectation is that classroom and community will become mutual agents of change. (Author)
