Taken together, the 20 chapters in this book provide many suggestions, predictions, alternatives, innovations, and improvements in the speech communication curriculum that can be either undertaken or accomplished during the 1980s. The first five chapters speculate positively about the future of speech communication instruction in five of its most common settings--elementary schools, secondary schools, community colleges, colleges and universities, and the world of work. Chapters 6 through 15 focus on an alphabetized arrangement of the major content areas for speech communication instruction as categorized by the National Center for Education Statistics, including communication theory, intercultural communication, interpersonal communication, mass communication, oral interpretation, organizational communication, pragmatic communication, public address, and rhetorical theory. The remaining five chapters discuss instructional topics of special concern for speech communication teachers, such as oral communication as a basic skill, learning styles, instructional strategies, the training of teachers, and the special needs of handicapped, reticent, gifted, bilingual, and female students.
