Improving Classroom Communication: Speech Communication Instruction for Teachers.
Lynn, Elizabeth M.
Recognition of the importance of the classroom as a communication environment, in which the teaching/learning process relies upon the interactive behaviors of speaking and listening, has contributed to the rapid multiplication over the past few years of courses in classroom communication. This publication, designed for educational planners (including governmental and private funding agencies) and for speech department personnel concerned with providing teacher communication programs, deals with the prevalence, design, and content of classroom communication courses; commonly used instructional strategies; instructors' qualifications; model courses; and the effectiveness of such courses. Included are an annotated bibliography of resource materials for course development and lists of schools surveyed for course offerings, both undergraduate and graduate. (JM)
