Obstacles To Overcome In The Implementation Of A Program To Reduce Communication Apprehension In The Basic Public Speaking Course, Bruce C. Mckinney, Stephen J. Pullum Jan 1994

Obstacles To Overcome In The Implementation Of A Program To Reduce Communication Apprehension In The Basic Public Speaking Course, Bruce C. Mckinney, Stephen J. Pullum

Basic Communication Course Annual

The problem of communication apprehension (CA) is well documented in the speech communication literature and many schools have implemented programs to help students overcome CA, especially CA associated with public speaking. Often times this is done as part of the basic course. However, there are many obstacles to overcome in the implementation of such programs. This article analyzes six common obstacles associated with implementing a program to reduce CA in a special section of the basic communication course.


An Assessment Of Panel Vs. Individual Instructor Ratings Of Student Speeches, David E. Williams, Robert A. Stewart Jan 1994

An Assessment Of Panel Vs. Individual Instructor Ratings Of Student Speeches, David E. Williams, Robert A. Stewart

Basic Communication Course Annual

This study addressed the possibility of utilizing a panel of instructors to evaluate student speeches. Forty-six public speaking students were videotaped during an informative speech assignment. Instructor panels evaluated each speech using the same criteria as the real instructor. This study found that trait error exists in panel grading as it does in individual instructor evaluation. Panel and individual instructor ratings were generally similar but inferior speeches were graded lower by the panel than the real instructor. This suggests that panels may be less likely to experience leniency error and may give more accurate evaluations of weaker speeches. Considerations are ...

Meeting Certification Requirements For Teacher Certification Through The Basic Course, S. Clay Willmington, Kay E. Neal, Milda M. Steinbrecher

Basic Communication Course Annual

Features of the course include the following standardized assessments: a 60-question multiple-choice exam to assess cognitive proficiency; a one-on-one interpersonal encounter to assess interpersonal proficiency; a speech to inform to assess public speaking proficiency; and the use of the Steinbrecher-Willmington Listening Test to assess listening.

The Basic Course In Communication Theory: A Shift In Emphasis, Warren Sandmann Jan 1994

The Basic Course In Communication Theory: A Shift In Emphasis, Warren Sandmann

Basic Communication Course Annual

This essay calls for a change in how the introductory communication theory course is taught. Standard models and texts are examined, described and critiqued. The standard model of communication theory depicts theory as a body of knowledge to be studied and applied to specific situations. This one dominant paradigm of communication theory constrains other possible approaches to understanding and teaching communication theory. The remainder of the essay offers a rationale for a shift in the teaching of communication theory, and directions for preliminary changes in the teaching of communication theory.


Instructional Resource Innovations For The Introductory Communication Course, Craig Newburger Jan 1994

Instructional Resource Innovations For The Introductory Communication Course, Craig Newburger

Basic Communication Course Annual

The following four articles represent the proceedings of an SCA Seminar held at the New Orleans convention: "Instructional Resource Innovations for the Introductory Communication Course." These monographs detail four multi-media resource areas that introductory communication course directors can consider: Storytelling — the student-as-medium (Pamela Cooper); Visualization — the student-as-medium (Joe Ayres and Debbie M. Ayres); Self-confrontation — applications involving the use of videotape with public speaking instruction (Craig Newburger, Linda Brannon, and Arlie Daniel); and Computer-Mediated-Communication (Gerald M. Santoro and Gerald M. Phillips).

Interactive Video Instruction For Teaching Organizational Techniques In Public Speaking, Michael W. Cronin Jan 1994

Interactive Video Instruction For Teaching Organizational Techniques In Public Speaking, Michael W. Cronin

Basic Communication Course Annual

This article describes two interactive videodisc instructional programs for teaching organizational techniques in public speaking and reports the assessment of these programs. Formative evaluations indicate that students enjoyed the level III interactive video instruction (IVI). One-way analyses of variance indicated that students receiving IVI in "Constructing Speaking Outlines" (study 1) or "Developing Key Ideas" (study 2) achieved significantly higher recall/application test scores than did students in the control group in the respective study. Implications for the use of these IVI programs in supplementing traditional public speaking instruction are discussed.
