Alternative Approaches to Teaching Communication between Disabled and Ablebodied Persons.
Soule, Kari P.; Shih, Joy Christina
This paper reports on how two instructors implemented a unit in their introductory communications courses at a midsized Midwestern university about communication between disabled and ablebodied persons. The goals of the instructors are delineated in the paper, and the effectiveness of the unit is evaluated on several dimensions. The course material is analyzed as to what would or would not be effective when integrating this unit into future communications courses at other universities. According to the paper, both of the graduate-student instructors created this unit as a project for an upper-level communication course, Community Integration of Labeled People. In the paper, the two instructors compare their approaches to, and styles of, teaching this topic. Appendixes contain reaction questions for film clips, information for overheads, and discussion questions for an article. (Contains 23 references.) (NKA)
