Problem-Solution Mini-Speeches with Student-led Discussions.
Whitfield, Toni S.
This paper describes an assignment that is used in a hybrid speech course to test students' knowledge as well as work toward more application of the interpersonal, small group, and conflict aspects of the course. Discussion is scheduled after the lectures that cover those aspects, and a one-day lecture on the topic of persuasion and sources usually precedes the assignment. The paper explains that students must choose a controversial topic that can be addressed in a problem-solution format (topics should not be duplicated), and a 3-5 minute presentation should be prepared. The paper then outlines other details of the presentation, suggests possible topics, discusses the assignment's results, and defines grading criteria. A handout for students describing the exercise accompanies the paper. (NKA)
