Oral Communication K-9.
Cottrell, June, Ed.
This speech communication curriculum guide is designed to provide a comprehensive oral language curriculum, to suggest ways for integrating oral activities into other curriculum areas, and to stimulate ideas for using oral language in a holistic rather than a fragmentary learning environment. Following an introductory chapter on "creating the climate," eight units provide information on building a view of self, building relationships, group communication, communicating through talks and speeches, storytelling, reading aloud, creative drama, and communicating through the media. Each unit contains lists of objectives, suggested learning experiences, evaluation tools, and available audiovisual materials, as well as a bibliography. (RL)
