Assessment
and Goals:

Students will demonstrate control of the materials through testing, written critiques, and oral demonstrations.

Goals:  This course will support mastery of the principles and practices involved in the areas of Public Speaking, Interpersonal Communication, and Small Group Communication for the prospective teacher in grades 5-12 or others seeking licensure.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

New: THE DISCIPLINE HAS DECIDED THAT THE AMOUNT OF MATERIAL AND THE APPROACH TAKEN TO THAT MATERIAL DOES NOT FULLY MEET STUDENT NEEDS. INSTEAD, STUDENTS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THIS MATERIAL IN TWO COURSES RATHER THAN ONE TAUGHT AT A LOWER LEVEL.
Old:
 THE 2000 LEVEL CURRENTLY INDICATED FOR THE COURSE IS MISLEADING BOTH IN THE AMOUNT AND CHALLENGE OF THE WORK IN THE COURSE.  STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO WORK BEYOND THE INTRODUCTORY LEVEL.  MOST STUDENTS TAKING THIS COURSE ARE JUNIORS OR SENIORS.
