A merger of contemporary language arts and speech communication theory and practice, Teaching Oral Communication in Grades K-8 was inspired by the authors' involvement in a project to develop a language arts curriculum for K-8 high ability learners. This book attempts to bridge the interdisciplinary gap between contemporary oral communication theory and its actual application in the K-8 classroom. The authors present a coherent, useful explanation of key concepts in the development of oral communication competency combined with practical strategies of implementing these concepts, both within individual classrooms and as part of a larger curriculum development effort. For teachers of language arts and speech communication.
