Kansas Speech Communication Journal, v38 n2 Entire Issue Winter 1977
Five articles deal with concerns of teachers in the field of secondary speech education. The first article reports the responses of 84 speech education graduates to a questionnaire concerning their success in finding teaching jobs and their recommendations for course work for current speech education majors. Other articles discuss ways of helping students learn to function as speech communication critics, methods for teaching interpersonal communication in the secondary classroom, and suggested prerequisites for the high school speech and debate coach. The final article presents the results of a study that provides evidence that participation in certain high school extracurricular speech activities may be beneficial to students in fulfilling university-level communications requirements. Other features of this journal include "News and Notes" from individual districts of the Kansas Speech Communication Association, classroom tips for teachers, "Footnotes and Feedback" from readers, and a reproduction of the constitution of the Kansas Speech Communication Association.
