Interpersonal Interaction: A Selective Review.
Manning, Brad A.
This paper is intended to be a selective and expository review of the interpersonal interaction literature as it relates to classroom situations. The paper is limited in scope to those theoretical works that have been most heuristic for further research and those empirical studies that tested or in some way reflected upon the dimensions of the theoretical orientations described. The discussion of interpersonal interaction centers in the relationship between the perception of self and other, overt and covert communication, and social choice and modes of eliciting responses from others. The first chapter is a discussion of the dimensions of interpersonal interaction postulated by five major approaches. The second chapter is a consideration of the dimensions of classroom interaction. The final chapter concerns sources of influence on classroom interaction. This chapter also includes discussion of the empirical variables related to these dimensions, including personality, social and communication research, as well as some suggestions about ways in which the material could be applied directly to the classroom or to further research into the dynamics of classroom situations. A list of references is included. (SK)
