Sustaining Speaking Across the Curriculum Programs by Robert O Weiss( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1988 a paper described "Start-Up Strategies for Speaking and Listening across Disciplines," with special reference to eight institutions which at that time had relatively freshly-minted programs in speaking across the curriculum (Weiss). Eight strategies for starting such programs were delineated and remain viable today, but the shelf-life of speaking across the curriculum programs has turned out to be rather short since at least half of those described in 1988 are no longer in operation. What happens to these programs that diminishes them and in many cases interferes with their being sustained? The eight institutions which implemented programs were Clarkson University, Ithaca College, Pima Community College. St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, Central College, Hamline University, DePauw University, and Alverno College. This paper discusses each of these programs and their trajectories, along with three other programs originating during the same era, those of the Borough of Manhattan Community College, Bismarck State College, and Radford University. Although every one of the programs examined has had some productive and positive aspects, the paper's concern is with the hazards they faced in sustaining themselves. It points to financial exigencies, leader dependence, insufficient institutionalization, and academic ideologies as some of the problems leading to the discontinuation of these programs.

Discourse Fields Across the Curriculum by Robert O Weiss( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to explore the rhetorical components of instruction at the undergraduate level and determine whether differences and similarities exist among the discourse fields represented by instructors in the kind of talk which they regard as desirable in their classroom, formal interviews were conducted with teaching faculty representing l5 different fields at a small midwestern university. The disciplines represented included art, chemistry, communication, economics, English, music, physics, psychology, and theatre. Thirteen of the faculty members had completed a speaking and listening across disciplines workshop, and all were individuals who incorporated student speaking liberally in their courses. Because each discipline was represented by only one respondent, no conclusions about a specific field should be drawn. However, with a broad specturm of fields represented, useful similarities and differences can be identified, and four conclusions suggest themselves as guides to the disciplinary fields: (1) some distinctions in kinds of talk regarded as appropriate in undergraduate classrooms are seen; (2) in developing programs of speaking and learning across disciplines, a proviso should be introduced to the effect that talk is not the same in every classroom; (3) a discrete "discourse field" which could exist may be labeled "academic," that students should get used to; and (4) the less valued kinds of talk relating common experiences should be built upon rather than discounted. (Fifteen references are attached.) (Nh)
Conference Maketh a Ready Person: A Preliminary Study by Robert O Weiss( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study reported in this paper attempted to find out what evidences of active learning were displayed in the "ready," I.E., prompt and appropriate responses called for in classroom oral communication. Such an inquiry leads toward the claim that the learning process itself is a suitable arena for evaluation, and thus that the evaluation of written and oral communication practices provide acceptable evidence of disciplinary learning. To test this assertion, a college composition class was instructed to discuss the "Japanese idea of beauty," and written transcripts were made of the oral discussions. Students were also given reading assignments on the subject and were required to write short papers. Two oral discussions and 14 written papers were examined. From an analysis of the transcripts and papers, six categories, each representing a certain kind of learning process, emerged: (1) synthesizing outside material; (2) linking ideas together; (3) discovering contradictions; (4) suggesting qualifications; (5) internalizing; and (6) tentativeness. Analysis of these categories indicates that important intellectual processes defined as "readiness" may be observed in oral classroom discussion, and may be seen as representations of active learning. If encouraging synthesis of ideas is an educational objective, evidence of it is present in oral interaction. If the aim is to promote contradiction and challenge, tentativeness and exploration, internalization and commitment, educators can look to class discussions for signs of success. (Sg)
