Patterned Teaching Behavior: A Study of Dyadic Infracommunication.
Dennis, Virginia C.
This is one of a series of proxemic studies made in laboratory, natural, or academic settings by the researcher with the Dennis Infracommunication Analysis Device to observe, classify, record, and analyze dyadic infracommunication, including verbal and nonverbal modes. The focus was on communicative behavior of teacher and pupil, student teacher and pupil, and teacher and student teacher interaction. The researcher observed 2,633 dyads at an elementary school and recorded sex, race, status, position, locomotion, spatial distance, angle of orientation, gaze, smile, touch, and audible transmissions. Resulting empirical data showed communication patterns varied by sex, race, and status, revealing patterns of teaching behavior. (Four tables of data are included.) (Author)
