Basic Communication Skills

Is it real­ly too much to ask that peo­ple who say they’re grad­u­at­ing at the end of the cur­rent semes­ter with a degree in tech­ni­cal and pro­fes­sion­al com­mu­ni­ca­tions be able to do the following?

1) Use stan­dard Eng­lish and speak clear­ly dur­ing a for­mal pre­sen­ta­tion, mak­ing eye con­tact with the audience.
2) Write a paper using stan­dard Amer­i­can Eng­lish spelling and grammar.
3) Read an arti­cle and under­stand it, so that the time­line or sum­ma­ry they write based on it is accurate.
4) Write a cohe­sive post to the class mes­sage board with clear points and facts sup­port­ing those points.
5) Post replies to oth­ers’ posts that con­sist of more than “I dis­agree” or “your (sic) wrong.”

I’m just saying…
