Classroom Communication and Diversity provides a useful framework for helping both new and experienced teachers and instructors navigate the different communication challenges in today's diverse classroom. It encourages teachers to reflect on how their personal cultures influence their expectations regarding classroom communication. This textbook is unique and distinctive in its distillation of research from numerous sources to provide the best viewpoint and systems for focusing on the needs of the individual learner. Robert Powell and Dana Powell draw on research in both the communication and education disciplines and provide in Classroom Communication Diversity useful strategies for improving teaching practices alongside theoretical models regarding diversity in the classroom. Much of the information found in this text is also inspired by the authors' direct experience in schools and from the experience they've gleaned from other first-line instructors, as well as parents and children. Teachers and scholars in the communication and education fields will find this text practical and valuable for their teaching efforts, and is appropriate for instructional communication courses in both disciplines. New to the third edition include expanded coverage of students with diverse needs, a section of working effectively with parents, and the topic of cultural influences and the impact of race and ethnicity on disciplinary actions. Also newly covered is the role of social media and its impact on instructional communication, as well as the increase of educational technology use.
