Language in the Classroom.
Stewart, Lea P.
Noting that language should be a vital area of concern for anyone interested in speech communication, this paper focuses on the concern for language in the classroom as it is discussed in speech communication literature. Selected studies from the more extensive literature on educational practices are also cited. Programs in which language is studied as a part of communication courses are mentioned and the concern for acceptable language and studies of semantics and oral language in these courses is noted. The literature reviewed shows concern about language in the classroom in two primary areas: (1) helping children acquire language skills, and (2) helping older students develop skilled use of language. The problems of nonstandard speech, dialects, and teacher attitudes toward such language usage are considered. (MKM)
