Summary

This book provides a synthesis of important research on communication instruction and builds on that by discussing how students (beginning teachers) can apply the information to their own teaching.

With eleven chapters written or co-written by some of the most prolific instructional communication researchers, this text provides students with diverse viewpoints and perspectives on a wide range of topics that impact their own communication with students in a classroom setting.

Features

  • Provides a student-centered approach to teaching that encourages beginning teachers to consider how their students learn best and to adapt their teaching styles accordingly.
  • Includes an entire section on special topics, such as distance education, communicating with students from other cultures, and communicating with students of various ages, which introduces students to some of the challenges they may face as new teachers and discusses how to handle those challenges effectively.
  • Walks new teachers through the teaching process, making it highly and immediately applicable -- even before they have completed the text.
  • Offers a thorough integration of concepts from education and communication, discussing a variety of important teaching behaviors and the ways in which they can be applied to the classroom.
