A Suggested Model for Developing a K-12 Oral Communications Program.
Erickson, Mary Jo; MacDermot, Harold
The curriculum model offered in this manual is designed to provide a framework within which teachers and administrators can manage an oral communication program. Following introductory discussions on defining terms, preparing statements of philosophy, and setting goals, sections of the manual contain information on the following topics: (1) the foundations of an oral communication program, such as the functions of communications, the delineation of communication competencies, and the types of communication situations on which the program should focus; (2) guidelines for management of the oral communication program, including time allotments, articulation, and administrators' responsibilities; and (3) guidelines for instruction, including classroom teachers' responsibilities, exemplary objectives with suggested activities, instructional grouping procedures, record keeping, and assessment of student progress. A bibliography contains lists of print resources, instructional pamphlets and textbooks on teaching listening, and audiovisual materials. Three appendixes provide a glossary of communication terms, suggestions for small group organization, and exemplary oral communication activities for content area teachers. (RL)
