Super Techniques for Teachers.
Foley, Michael K.
A variety of techniques can help a teacher create the atmosphere of a "quality circle," a Japanese management method in which each member of a group shares and contributes to the learning experience. "Creating a Commercial" allows students to create original oratory for presentation to the class. In "The Good News First," students improve their oral skills by presenting a speech on a variety of topics. In "Listen My Children" students develop listening skills by listening and responding to poetry. In "Eula's Eulogy," students sharpen their public speaking skills by writing and delivering speeches eulogizing themselves. "A Pigment of Your Imagination" uses malapropisms to improve speech technique and listening awareness. In "Tune in Again Next Week..." students improve listening skills through presentation of an audience participation story. Finally, students develop listening skills while literally spinning a yarn.
