The Language Crisis in America and The Challenge of Teaching Communication Survival Skills for the 21st Century.
Gile, John
Based on a journalist's experience with students, observation of and conversations with hundreds of teachers and principals, and 22 years' experience as an employer in business communications, this keynote speech reports on the current crisis teachers face in developing the communication skills of their students for the future. The speech outlines the social problems faced by today's young people and advances some ideas about how teachers and principals can help foster critical thinking skills in students. The speech also advances the idea of a new program called "Fresh Start" (based on "Head Start") to help students with serious behavior problems. (SAM)
