ABSTRACT
This paper outlines the standards for oral communication developed by representatives of the Speech Communication Association and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Oral communication: the process of interacting through heard and spoken messages in a variety of situations. Oral communication instruction addresses the everyday communication needs of students and includes emphasis on the classroom as a practical communication environment. There is a wide range of communication competence among speakers of the same language. Communication competence is not dependent upon use of a particular form of language. A primary goal of oral communication instruction is to increase the students' repertoire and use of effective speaking and listening behaviors. The oral communication program is based on current theory and research in speech and language development, psycholinguistics, rhetorical and communication theory, communication disorders, speech science and related fields of study. Individuals responsible for oral communication instruction receive continuing education on theories, research and instruction relevant to communication. Teachers in all curriculum areas receive information on appropriate methods for using oral communication to facilitate instruction and using the subject matter to improve students' oral communication skills.
