Activities for Teaching Speaking and Listening: Grades 7-12.
Cooper, Pamela J., Ed.
The activities included in this book are based on current theory on effective oral communication and are intended to increase students' repertoire and use of effective oral communication behaviors. Specifically, the book's activities are designed to (1) appeal to students of all ability levels; (2) provide for student interaction and involvement; (3) involve students in creating and receiving messages in a variety of contexts for a variety of purposes; (4) provide for integrating oral communication instruction across the curriculum; (5) focus on integrating oral communication competencies rather than units of communication activity or communication contexts; and (6) provide for sequential instruction in oral communication within each subcategory of each of the four major competencies. The book divides the activities by grade levels: 7-9 and 10-12, and includes three activities for each subcompetency for each set of skills--communication codes, message evaluation, basic communication skills, and human relations. These activities relate to three purposes--occupational, citizenship, and maintenance. Each activity includes objectives, procedures for implementing the activity, follow-up suggestions and/or questions, and evaluation/assessment procedures. The book contains the SCA guidelines for speaking and listening competencies for high school graduates. (HOD)
