The Reticent Child in the Classroom: Oral Communication Concepts and Activities. A Manual for Teachers (K-12).
Alameda County School Dept., Hayward, CA.
To develop communication skills among non-participating students, teachers must recognize, diagnose, and treat individual problems of the reticent child. Teachers need to convey the concept of an "open" classroom where all ideas are welcome, to develop questioning and "active listening," to encourage eye contact, to make use of small group discussions, to promote classroom discussion among students as well as between teacher and student, and to assume a supportive role. (A "model" plan for eight lessons, and bibliographies on creative dramatics and student-teacher interaction are included in this ESEA Title 3 report.) (JMC)
