Transactional Communication in the Classroom.
Harral, Harriet Briscoe
This paper discusses the application of a transactional philosophy to the problems of classroom communication. Four aspects of teacher/student interaction are discussed in detail: the choice between a bilateral relationship in which students are seen as unique persons and a unilateral relationship in which students are treated as objects or victims; the choice between power parity with shared choices and power maintenance with restricted choices; the choice between cooperative or competitive aims; and the need for risk taking.
