Coaching Strategies in Contest Rhetorical Criticism.
Reynolds, Christina L.
Coaching rhetorical criticism events is demanding because it places demands on a forensic coach's knowledge of rhetorical theory and method and is time consuming. However, it may become a simpler event to coach if there is an understanding of the process of developing a speech for rhetorical criticism and specific strategies that can be used in coaching the event. There are six steps in developing a speech: (1) deciding on a subject, (2) doing research, (3) analyzing through dialogue, (4) utilizing method, (5) synthesizing methods, and (6) writing the speech. Among the ten suggested coaching strategies are talking and listening to students, making students defend their answers to a coach's questions, and keeping an annotated card file of books and articles encountered in readings.
