Communication: An English Course for Juniors and Seniors.
Steele, Mildred R.
This paper describes the development and design of English 118 at Drake University. The course, geared primarily for college juniors and seniors, devotes proportionate shares of time to the theory, practice, and analysis of written expression, oral interpretation, and nonverbal communication. Six course options enable a wide variety of students to adapt the course more specifically to their needs, abilities, achievement levels, and schedules; student response to the options has been positive. Two scheduled individual conferences with the teacher enable students to focus on their course interests or problems. Staggered due dates for assignments enable the instructor to cope more adequately with assignments. A course syllabus, course requirements, and a bibliography are included. (RL)
