Student Starters: Using a Student-Read Announcement or Article as a Classroom Management Strategy.
Ducharme, Jodeen
This paper presents a classroom management technique designed to bring an ordered routine and smooth beginning to each public speaking class. A student-read announcement or article is used to start the class. The paper explains the goals and gives directions for use of this technique. An introductory lesson which covers the fundamentals of presenting an announcement, such as previewing the material, gaining audience attention, and speaking effectively, is presented. This class opener can be easily adapted to all academic disciplines to promote, among other things, recall, participation, classmate recognition, leadership initiative, and oral communication skills.
