Teaching Innovations

  • Integrated service learning into Communication 4850, Methods of Teaching Speech in the Secondary School. Students tutored in the schools and drew on those experiences to discuss course concepts.

Students interviewed members of Ogden’s minority populations (African American & Hispanic) in an effort to establish a history and also learn about prejudice, discrimination, white privilege, and racial relations as they were experienced by Ogden’s minority residents. This project is currently proceeding with a group of Comm 3080 students who wanted to continue with the research.
