Teacher Communication in the Classroom.
Del Polito, Carolyn M.
This module (part of a series of 24 modules) is on understanding the process of communication in the classroom, the teacher's role in the process, and implications for instruction. The genesis of these materials is in the 10 "clusters of capabilities," outlined in the paper, "A Common Body of Practice for Teachers: The Challenge of Public Law 94-142 to Teacher Education." These clusters form the proposed core of professional knowledge needed by teachers in the future. The module is to be used by teacher educators to reexamine and enhance their current practice in preparing classroom teachers to work competently and comfortably with children who have a wide range of individual needs. The module includes objectives, scales for assessing the degree to which the identified knowledge and practices are prevalent in an existing teacher education program, and self-assessment test items. Topics discussed in this module include communication competence, the communication process, barriers to communication effectiveness, enhancing communication effectiveness, and implications for instruction. Articles on communicating effectively with handicapped students are included, as well as sample exercises and evaluation forms for a variety of communication activities. (JD)
