Summary

In preparing urban teachers to become effective classroom communicators, urban speech teachers should involve their students in interpersonal communication within an intergroup context whenever possible. Students must be taught to become sensitive to word choice, aware of the importance of verbal and nonverbal codes, and more empathic. To accomplish this goal, teachers must investigate the feelings and attitudes of people of other groups by learning facts about them via children, parents, and books. They can also get additional communication training through self-analysis and intergroup and interpersonal situations designed to develop empathy. Some approaches which may be used to accomplish this goal are simulation games, communication effectiveness exercises, role playing, and self-disclosure. Guidelines for future urban educators include the following: (1) interracial communication is facilitated when the communicators share a common coding system; (2) meaning communication in transracial contexts requires the proximity of source and receiver; and (3) interpersonal communication with transracial contexts often fails because the sender and the receiver do not share or seek each other's point of view.
