Teaching Strategies for a Course in Political Communication.
Frye, Jerry K.
This paper presents approaches and perspectives for anyone interested in designing university courses in the field of political communication. These include focusing on a single political figure or a single issue, focusing on a political genre, focusing on the mass media in relationship to political success, focusing on media exploitation, and focusing on a political campaign. Topics to be explored include the print media, electronic media, political communication techniques, and campaign issues. Several activities are delineated, including documenting evidence and pretending to be a speechwriter for a politician. (TS)
