Toward a Value Clarification Rhetoric: A Method for Teaching Ethics/Values in the Basic Speech Course.
Meiswinkel, Lauren B.
Classroom speaking poses a unique opportunity for the evaluation and the clarification of human values. Value clarification is possible when a specific method is followed that encourages potential behavior change on the part of the speaker. Value clarification can thus be usefully applied by speech communication teachers as a natural, integral part of persuasive speeches. Certain techniques, such as the outline process, the value grid, and the speaker's identification with the topic, can help students to create final speech experiences in which they achieve an action or modify their own values and the values of others. (A technical grid, a technical plot outline form, and an illustration of a rhetorical strategy outline for achieving a persuasive/ethical goal are attached.) (RL)
