On Theoretical Progress and Basic Course Pedagogy.
Haynes, W. Lance
The gulf between scholarly applications and rhetorical praxis in the speech classroom is enormous. It seems clear that the theoretical base will never release its stranglehold on the classical paradigm until the agendas of basic course classrooms do so as well. No new paradigm may realistically hope to contest the established tradition until the paradigm can be and is taught and applied so handily as to satisfy the pragmatic needs of professional and student communicators. There needs to be a special relationship between practices in basic courses and the advancement of theoretical knowledge in the field. By deliberately broadening the basic course focus to include new theory, educators take an important step to ease the path as they reach for the future. (Nineteen references are attached.) (MG)
