Oral Self Critique: Raising Student Consciousness of Communication (In)Competence
Lucas, Kristen
Communication Teacher, v25 n1 p12-15 Jan 2011
Communication teachers spend considerable time instructing students how to organize and deliver professional oral presentations, design effective PowerPoint slides, answer interview questions, and communicate effectively in problem-solving teams. Yet considerably less time is spent systematically teaching them the communication skill they will use most: day-to-day verbal communication. Improving verbal communication competence will contribute to students' success across a variety of communication contexts. This activity raises students' consciousness of their own verbal communication patterns and gives them a starting point for improving their verbal skills. A list of references and suggested readings is included.
