History Speaks: A Manual On Impersonation Speaking, Robert D. Kendall Jan 2003

History Speaks: A Manual On Impersonation Speaking, Robert D. Kendall

Communication Studies Faculty Publications

In this manual I will first comment on the writing of history in general and then trace the very irregular and halting history of"Impersonation Speaking" as an art, particularly as it is conveyed through "First Person Monologs." Then l will lead the reader through the specific tasks of choosing and researching an appropriate character to portray, locating the speech in time and place, and identifying the audience in order to speak to its concerns. These chapters will be followed by a discussion of self­concept, and how it affects a character's public presentation. Then comes the task of ...


Impersonation Speaking, Robert D. Kendall Apr 1991

Impersonation Speaking, Robert D. Kendall

Communication Studies Faculty Publications

The catalog description of SPC 337 reads like this: "The study of First Person Monologs as a form of pub!ic speaking. Research and development of an historical character/speaker for public presentation." Allow me to expand on this capsulized description. This course attempts to teach students the process of developing and delivering a public speech that some historical character of their choosing could have given at some point in that person/s life. Through a series of carefully planned assignments, one building upon the other, each student researches the life, character and times of a histor-ical figure: writes an ...

Communication Ethics: Is There An Alternative To Teaching It Prescriptively?, Robert D. Kendall Nov 1988

Communication Ethics: Is There An Alternative To Teaching It Prescriptively?, Robert D. Kendall

Communication Studies Faculty Publications

A goodly number of us are "only" teaching-practitioners in the field of communication ethics. To use the word "only" in this context is not meant to depreciate the worth of the classroom teacher, nor to suggest a separation between the theorist and the practitioner, but rather to identify where many of us, for one reason or another, focus the bulk of our time and energy, Because few of us in the profession take the time to concentrate on this particular scholarly activity, and because few of us are assigned to teach only a Communication Ethics course, we who teach the ...
