The Use of Student Journals in the Basic Speech Course.
The keeping of journals by students in the basic speech course is the focus of this paper, which is divided into three parts. Part 1 examines the benefits of journal use to students and teachers and points out that three types of learning can thus be encouraged: the development of thinking skills, personal growth, and content learning. It also contains an excerpt from one student's journals. Part 2 lists 12 reasons for using journals in class and contains guidelines for their use that answer questions about evaluation, length and frequency of assignments, and choice of topics. Part 3 provides specific suggestions for journal assignments that correspond to topics covered in most basic speech courses. (EL)
