The Clark County School District has implemented the communication strand within the high school English curriculum. Its objectives and activities provide instructional guidelines for teacher use within the classroom situation. This study surveyed high school English teachers and found that the majority of teachers did little or nothing to incorporate speech in their curriculum. The principal reasons given were lack of time, lack of materials, and inadequate university preparation. The study also found newer teachers were more receptive to changes that would allow them to include speech in the curriculum than are veteran teachers; Most teachers support speech education but as an elective, not a requirement, of the curriculum.
