Le Storti, Anthony J.; And Others
The unit on nonverbal communication is designed for presentation to elementary, middle, and junior high school gifted students. An introductory section lists four unit objectives leading to awareness of the nonverbal communication transmitted by students themselves and by others; expression and understanding of the nonverbal messages of gestures, postures, facial expressions, etc.; involvement in communication activities which develop self confidence and self expression; and development of creativity in and sensitivity to aesthetic movement. Following another section which lists suggested audiovisual and printed materials are nine lessons which cover such topics as critical analysis of nonverbal communication, creative movement, movement as interpretation of poetry, movement as interpretation of music, and aesthetics of movement. Information on each lesson includes the objectives, suggested materials, and presentation procedures. (SB)
