Instruction Strategies for the Student with Speech Anxiety.
Armstrong, Kimberly
Throughout students' academic careers, they are required to perform a variety of speech-related activities. According to one study, students with demonstrated communication anxiety are less successful academically. Both the instructor and the librarian can contribute to assisting the student with communication anxiety. Using a variety of instructional techniques and providing independent learning opportunities reduces interpersonal interaction while preparing the student for assignments requiring communication skills. Based on a variety of studies on communication anxiety, librarians should provide specific strategies for conducting library research and appropriate reserve material in support of the class curriculum, whether in print or nonprint format. The instructor can provide class time in support of library research, require deadlines leading up to the presentation, and present videotaped examples of previous presentations with suggestions for appropriate presentation style.
