Weaver, Richard L., II; Cotrell, Howard W.
Forced discipline refers to the specific procedures, routines, and standards required for carrying out course-related tasks. This paper discusses various facets of discipline, then looks at how 160 students in a basic speech-communication course respond to forced discipline. The paper next looks at how 30 basic-course directors define forced discipline and offers examples and opinions of the directors regarding forced discipline. The paper concludes with suggestions and guidelines for handling discipline in basic, speech-communication courses. Four footnotes are included. (Contains 10 references.) (RS)
