Values Clarification and Speech Communication.
Gurry, Joanne
In the speech communication classroom, values clarification activities can be used as motivational techniques and as methods for teaching interpersonal communication skills. Learning to use communication skills can be a values-clarifying process in itself and can occur in speech areas viewed as primarily cognitive: argumentation, persuasion, discussion, and so on. In addition, teachers must be able to apply effective interpersonal skills to their own teaching and to recognize that many of these skills will be for listening, responding, and questioning, as well as for informing. Finally, student evaluation can be approached using the principles of personal growth and can range from brief feedback to a complex set of criterion-referenced assignments or contracts. In short, values clarification can be considered a technique whose impact is already discernible in the texts and teaching of speech communication. (Author/KS)
