Communication Techniques and Their Effects on Self-Concept in the Classroom.
Brassfield, April; Daniels, Christy
Student self-concept represents a newly emerging and extremely important field of study for instructors and classroom facilitators. This paper presents studies and theories investigating self-concept as a significant factor in the classroom. Self-concept is deeply imbedded in intrapersonal, perception, and interpersonal communication. In order to investigate self-concept, the paper first looks at the classroom from a systems theory perspective. It then proceeds to investigate intrapersonal communication, its significance in the classroom, and its link to self-concept theory. This leads into a discussion of perception and interpersonal communication between instructor and student. The paper investigates self-concept theory, recognizes its positive significance when applied to the instructional setting, and offers practical applications to aid instructors in concentrating on student self-concept as a way of motivating and increasing student learning.
