Speech for Teachers
Teaching is one of the most important and difficult jobs in today’s society. Many of society’s problems impact today’s teachers on several levels. The key to effectively dealing with all those factors and being successful in facilitating student learning is the teacher’s communication both in and out of the classroom. This course, required for all students seeking state teacher certification, helps students to apply educational and communication theories, principles, and practices to real-world situations confronting teachers. Students develop presentational skills and instructional techniques through synthesis of content from education, communication, and their chosen content area of teaching, and through classroom practice and constructive evaluation.
