Forensics: Our Contribution to Education. The Art of Persuasion: Beautiful and Just; Papers in Honor of Raymond Yeager.
Carbone, Ralph E.
Raymond Yeager, director of forensics and professor of speech at Bowling Green State University, has reflected the best qualties which forensics as a discipline has contributed to education. As teacher and debate coach, Raymond Yeager believed that only through the rigors of competition would his students be able to acquire and develop the skills of analysis, research, organization, and presentation that would serve them in their later lives. Yeager maintained that it was the pursuit rather than the achievement of excellence that mattered most and that such an emphasis would not only permit more students to feel good about themselves and to appreciate the accomplishments of others, but also would lead them to greater achievement. As mentor and doctoral advisor, Raymond Yeager instructed students how to be understanding and to treat others in a kind and humane way, and how to accomplish what they really sought to do. (KEH)
