A Design For A Basic Speech Course For Community College Students.
Courtney, Charles
Designed to help prepare community college students for transfer to four-year institutions, this speech course was developed for a metropolitan area of 10,000 to 15,000 population. It consists of four stages: entering behavior, instructional objectives, instructional procedures, and evaluation. The students average 25 years of age; many are employed in either full-time or part-time work. The goals are to provide students with opportunities to analyze and experience communication in dyadic, small group, and public contexts; to provide opportunities to develop effective speaking abilities in both formal and informal situations; to enable students to use proper speech communication methods; and to encourage the exchange of information, to arrive at a group solution. Among the procedures to be employed are lectures, discussions, and individual speaking activities. Evaluation consists of specific criteria for examinations, performances, and projects. Topics of the four units of study presented are the communicative process, interpersonal communication, small group, and public speaking. Each unit is complete with introduction, objectives, required reading and activity, subject-matter outline, and evaluation procedures. (HOD)
