Developing Communication Competence in Children; A Report of the Speech Communication Association's National Project on Speech Communication Competencies.
Allen, R. R., Ed.; Brown, Kenneth L., Ed.
The primary purpose of the project documented in this volume was to identify the most fruitful directions for the development of speech communication instruction in the schools. The contents reflect the two phases of the project: input--a literature review, a behavioral study of children's communication competencies and attitudes, and an assessment of teachers' attitudes regarding the goals of speech communication instruction; and synthesis--a conference for defining communication competence and specifying implications of this definition for research and instruction. Appendixes list objectives (with grade level) from the questionnaire study and functional communication competencies (for ages 3 to 18) derived from the literature review. A bibliography concludes the volume. (JM)
