Integrating Speaking Skills into the Curriculum.
Nugent, Susan Monroe, Ed.
The Leaflet, v85 n1 Win 1986
Stressing the importance of incorporating speech skills throughout the curriculum, the articles in this journal provide ideas for developing speaking skills in all subjects and at all levels. The titles of the articles and their authors include the following: (1) "Speaking Skills: A Few Tips from an Old Timer" (Geoffrey R. Butler); (2) "Storytelling: A Process-Oriented Approach" (Amelia Goss and Mary Batchelder); (3) "Speech and Technical Writing: A Combined Approach" (Linda A. Desjardins); (4) "Challenging Verbal Passivity" (A. Jane Hamilton); (5) "The Play's the Thing: Students Acting Shakespeare" (Cheryl Christian); and (6) "The Rhetorical Cycle: Reading, Thinking, Speaking, Listening, Discussing, Writing" (Rodney D. Keller). The final two articles address the need to stress cognitive skills. "ERIC/RCS Update: Teaching Thinking Skills in English/Language Arts" (Fran Lehr) provides resources for teaching thinking, while "Mapping and the Developmental Writer" (H. Eric Branscomb) outlines a method for mapping papers that could also be used to map speeches. (SRT)
