Student Communication Behaviors and Their Influence on Teachers and Teaching in the American Classroom: A Review of Recent Communication Research.
Mottet, Timothy P.
This review of literature examines student communication behaviors and their influence on teachers and teaching. The purpose of this paper is two-fold. First, it reviews recent communication research that examines student communication behaviors and how their verbal and nonverbal messages have been shown to influence the instructional process in the American educational system. This research remains significant not only because of what we know about the transactional nature of human communication, but also because of the continual pedagogical shift away from teacher-centered and toward student-centered models of instruction in the United States. The second purpose for this paper is to stimulate a conversation among Russian communication scholars regarding the role of communication in the Russian classroom. Realizing that some of this research may not be applicable and/or culturally appropriate, it is hoped that this paper will help highlight similarities and differences between Russian and American models of instruction and perhaps stimulate new programs of instructional communication research and research partnerships.
