Be Relevant, Careful, And Appropriate: Scary Advice On The Use Of Humor To The Novice Public Speaker, Judythe A. Isserlis Jan 1992

Be Relevant, Careful, And Appropriate: Scary Advice On The Use Of Humor To The Novice Public Speaker, Judythe A. Isserlis

Basic Communication Course Annual

Most contemporary public speaking texts contain some reference to the effective use of humor by public speakers. This advice tends to reflect common assumptions on the role of humor in public speaking and the ability of the novice speaker to incorporate humor in a speech. A review of 27 contemporary texts explores the trend in humor instruction and offers 11 categories which summarize the treatment of humor: (1) theories of humor, (2) rationale for the use of humor, (3) guidelines for the use of humor, (4) sources of humor, (5) humor as a factor of attention, (6) specific humorous techniques ...


Evaluation Of A Basic Communication Course, Wendy S. Zabava Ford, Andrew D. Wolvin Jan 1992

Evaluation Of A Basic Communication Course, Wendy S. Zabava Ford, Andrew D. Wolvin

Basic Communication Course Annual

This study addressed the effects of a basic communication course on students' perceptions of their communication skills. Students enrolled in a basic course were asked via a pre- and post- course questionnaire to assess changes in their perceptions of their communication skills. An analysis of the questionnaire results revealed that the basic course did have a positive effect on students' perceptions of their communication skills, particularly in presentation and interviewing skills, and on their comfort in communicating. The results also illustrate that the effects on communication skills were stronger in those areas (especially public speaking) where students perceived the greatest ...

Directing The Basic Communication Course: Eighteen Years Later, Richard L. Weaver Ii, Howard W. Cotrell Jan 1992

Directing The Basic Communication Course: Eighteen Years Later, Richard L. Weaver Ii, Howard W. Cotrell

Basic Communication Course Annual

We focused on three problems that evolve over time for veteran basic course directors. After briefly commenting on the state of basic course literature, we discuss dealing with tradition, motivating students for the long term, and maintaining our own motivation for the course — three areas quite distinct from those addressed in an earlier article. The ideas and issues discussed here have arisen as a result of eighteen years of directing a basic communication course.

Video-Modeling And Pre-Performance Apprehension: Is Ignorance Bliss?, Craig Newburger, Michael Hemphill Jan 1992

Video-Modeling And Pre-Performance Apprehension: Is Ignorance Bliss?, Craig Newburger, Michael Hemphill

Basic Communication Course Annual

This research examined the impact of video-modeling on basic communication course students' public speaking apprehension. Students were confronted with successful and unsuccessful video model presentations of their first public speaking assignment. The viewing of the video models preceded in-class live performances. Results indicate that students who were confronted with both of the video models experienced increased public speaking apprehension, while students who viewed neither video model did not.


To Say Or Not; To Do Or Not — Those Are The Questions: Sexual Harassment And The Basic Course Instructor, Mary M. Gill, William J. Wardrope Jan 1992

To Say Or Not; To Do Or Not — Those Are The Questions: Sexual Harassment And The Basic Course Instructor, Mary M. Gill, William J. Wardrope

Basic Communication Course Annual

Although men and women may be the victims of sexual harassment, the majority of women will experience harassment in the classroom and/or on the job. Harassment in the classroom occurs often out of ignorance of knowing what constitutes harassing behaviors. Those feeling harassed often are not the only victims in these situations. Many "victims" of harassment are the inexperienced instructor or graduate assistant who realize too late that their well-intended actions have been received differently. The specific parameters of what constitutes harassing behaviors and its prevalence are examined. A training module is offered which presents guidelines for the basic ...
