Interpersonal Skill Development: A Neglected Component of Teacher Education.
Schoenecker, Mary F.
Teacher education programs should stress the development of classroom management skills before and during preservice teachers' field experiences. Research on interpersonal communications, as related to the role of the teacher and the teaching situation has identified a need for increased effectiveness in facilitative interpersonal functioning and classroom dynamics. These traits can be taught to preservice teachers. Components of a comprehensive classroom management curriculum for preservice teacher education should concentrate on strengthening communication skills, building good teacher-pupil relationships, and facilitating responsible behavior. Methods for dealing with aspects of management during student teaching are handled cooperatively between student teachers and the university supervisor. (Author/JD)
