Fundamentals of Communication: A Course of Study for the Mandated One Credit Speech Course.
Meeks, Lynn Langer
Delineating the content that must be covered in the secondary schools of the State of Idaho, this guide presents a course of study for a full-semester course designed to help students better understand the complexities of the communication process and succeed in a world of interaction. Although educators sometimes use the terms interchangeably, the course of study in the guide is not an instructional or curriculum guide--the course of study prescribes what is to be taught; defines the subject in terms of purpose, definition, student goals and objectives; and can be changed only by action of the State Board of Education. The guide begins by briefly discussing the philosophy, critical components, recommendations on class size and grade level at which the course is taught. The guide then lists the critical components (communication process, human relations skills, listening, and speech preparation and delivery) and goals for the course of study, followed by a detailed list of course objectives associated with each of the goals. A textbook adoption evaluation guide is attached. (RS)
