It will surely be accepted that one of the basic requirements of teaching
is communication. One hopes when one starts a course of study for students
that some significant level of comounication will be achieved. All of
the recent work in knowing and thinking; in the theories of the development
of the child, of consideration of curricula, of teaching and learning '
strategies, of modes of evaluation,all of this requires an understanding
and investigation of communication. When we consider communication, we
must attempt to answer the title - "How transitive is the verb 'to teach?".
The simplest model of communication is a rather mechanistic one, though
it will be fruitful to use it as an initial area of consideration.

Encoder - line or code - decoder (Model A)

For communication to take place, the line must obviously contact the
decoder, and he must be able to decode the message. If I use an
electric system, when I press a button, it must close a circuit and cause,
either a buzzer to sound, or a light to flash. The person who hears
or sees, the event may understand it as a sign or have his curiosity
aroused, or ignore it altogether, because it has no meaning for him,
that is to say, he has no previous experience with which to compare the
event, and therefore sees it as meaning - hearing.
These three short volumes, bound together here, are the basic text for
the Language and Education Course referred to in the submission of
Division of Teacher Education. The course was developed in order to acquaint serving teachers with
recent and important work in the study of language with special reference
to education.
