dc.description.abstractA list of communication topics for an educational handbook was compiled and analyzed from instructional communication concerns of student teachers, along with the past 20 years of research within the field. Results indicate that the following instructional communication topics are needed and relevant for a handbook designed for student teachers: Instructional Clarity; Communicating Teacher Authority; Classroom Management; Adapting to Different Cognitive Levels; Understanding Student Slang; Intercultural Communication; Socio-Communicative Styles; Teacher Immediacy (Verbal & Nonverbal); Discussion as an Instructional Strategy; and Teacher Nervousness or Communication Apprehension. Public school teachers also participated in a questionnaire, and some of their responses can be found in the handbook as well. The handbook as a resource tool could be helpful for the professional development of preservice teachers.
