A TV News Approach to Oral Communication.
The goal of the studio-workshop approach proposed in this booklet for speech communication instructors is to revitalize the ancient study of rhetoric by incorporating modern principles of behavioral science, informal information exchange, and mass media into the oral communication curriculum. The first section discusses communication theories and broadcast journalism as a model for public communication. The second half presents exercises to help sharpen communication skills and get students acquainted with one another. A semester syllabus for a television news approach to the oral communication studio-workshop is then presented, followed by the seven units of the course, which cover the advertisement, the news story, the editorial, the interview, the feature report, the critical review, and the network news telecast.
