Teaching Public Speaking with Simulations.
Kell, Carl L.; Winn, Larry James
In public-speaking courses, the use of games--a specific type of simulation--can help to overcome three of the most basic problems faced by the teacher: the gap between the study of theory and the application of that theory, the limited experience gained by students confined to speaking situations within classroom walls, and student stage fright. In order to maximize the effectiveness of gaming, the public-speaking instructor should plan carefully in terms of both the overall course framework and the individual games, temper the planning with flexibility and creativity, and utilize the Socratic method in the evaluation sessions.
