Oral Communication Instruction in Middle and High School Classes. The Talking and Writing Series, K-12: Successful Classroom Practices.
Gray, Philip A.
Prepared as part of a series applying recent research in oral and written communication instruction to classroom practice, this booklet provides teachers, administrators, and curriculum planners with suggestions for ways to develop more effective oral communication instruction in the content areas as well as speech classes. Following a brief introduction, the first major section of the booklet examines some basic assumptions about oral communication and speech instruction and reviews several premises for direct oral communication instruction. The second section presents six approaches that might be used in developing oral communication instruction: (1) functional, (2) audience, (3) skills, (4) activities, (5) contexts, and (6) models. The remaining sections discuss each approach in detail and provide activities illustrating each. (FL)
