Nonverbal Behavior and Student Achievement in the Elementary Classroom.
Smith, Howard A.
An investigation of the principal nonverbal factors elicited by four major correlational studies that examined the relationship between process and product variables in American elementary school classrooms yields several discernible trends, but for the most part contributes mainly to establishing a set of recommendations to guide future research in the field. Use of classroom space, student movement about the classroom, and assorted proxemic and kinesic teacher behaviors are the foci of the study. A bibliography is appended. (LH)
