Speech Communication Activities in the Writing Classroom.
Blankenship, Jane; Stelzner, Sara Latham
This booklet, part of a series of information resources for teachers, focuses on integrating speech communication activities into writing programs for older students. The activities described have been tested in the integrated skills program at the University of Massachusetts and include concrete plans, assignments, learning activities, and assessment techniques to use in incorporating speaking and listening into writing instruction. The major section of the booklet consists of course plan and assignments divided into six teaching units on patterns of communication, definition, reasoning, analysis, argument, and persuasion. A section on evaluation criteria for students includes sample evaluation sheets and a debate flow chart. The last section summarizes potential problems to be anticipated in developing and implementing an integrated skills approach. (AEA)
