Nonverbal Language Study.
Hennings, Dorothy Grant
Too often, language arts programs neglect nonverbal expression and interpretation, forgetting that they play a vital role in face-to-face communication and interaction. However, it is important that children learn to understand nonverbal messages, especially nonverbal devices manipulated by ad people and political personages. A variety of activities for involving grade-school children both in the fun of creative, nonverbal expression and in the interpretation of nonverbal messages range from simple kindergarten projects with pictures to a sophisticated sixth-grade study of impression management as used on television commercials and political telecasts.
