Oral Communication Instruction in the U.S.A.: Emerging Issues.
Lieb-Brilhart, Barbara
This review of the status of speech instruction is divided into five parts, each addressing a separate issue. The first part describes the context for a change in approaches to communication instruction. The second part lists those ingredients essential to a good program, including the communication functions of controlling, feeling, informing, ritualizing, and imagining. The third part responds to the question of who should teach communication skills by defining five roles teachers play in the classroom and suggesting goals for teachers and students. To operationalize those goals, a checklist is offered for principals or other observers to describe teachers' communication behaviors. The fourth part describes an ideal oral communication program, and the fifth part suggests methods of assessing oral communication skills. (AEA)
