Participation in the College Classroom: The Impact of Instructor Immediacy and Verbal Aggression.
Rocca, Kelly A.
A study examined the participation behaviors of undergraduate students. Much of the existing literature has focused on student variables in determining participation in the classroom. Here, the focus was on instructor variables instead. Students completed questionnaires and reported their own perceptions of their participation in class as well as their perceptions of their instructor's nonverbal immediacy and verbal aggression. Results indicated that students who perceived their teachers as higher in immediacy were more likely to participate in the class. Students who perceived their instructors as verbally aggressive were less likely to participate in class. Limitations, implications for the classroom, and future directions for this line of research are discussed. (Contains 90 references.) (Author/RS)
