Communication-Skills Tutorial for Teachers
About the Tutorial:
This tutorial communicates from a different point of view
than what's been taught to education majors these past decades—a
different communication model. Its premise: If we continue implementing new
programs and curriculums, such as, "No Child Left Behind,"
"Common Core," "Race to the Top," or "Every
Student Succeeds," using the prevailing
communication model, we will keep producing less than satisfying results.
University speech-communication curriculums
"introduce" education majors to the fundamentals and
principles of communication; what's
missing are the
topics addressed in this tutorial. The ideal curriculum for
education majors is an equal number of hours studying his/her major,
and communication, and leadership.
Problems with children persist when we adults unconsciously lapse
imitation of communication.
When a student is misbehaving or failing he/she is communicating, as
best they can, that something in their life isn't working. They do
this to draw attention to a specific problem, an incomplete, a
the majority of students do not have even one adult with whom to
talk about certain thoughts, consequently, student's minds are partially occupied with
withholds and incompletes. Thoughts of being yelled at during breakfast occupy space and serve as
barriers to communication. A teacher must clear a
student's mind (create space for communication to take place) before attempting to communicate subject matter;
this skill is not taught to education majors.
