29. What if teachers had to go through an effective communications course before they started teaching?

A lot of teachers may benefit from professional coaching on specifically their language and communication skills. These would range from the “open the window and let the climate come in” (old Indian joke) teachers to teachers who are already extremely impressive in their delivery of lectures and class interaction.

Language and communication both form extremely crucial carriers of the content messages. This includes spoken and written language as well as an emphasis on communication strategies.

What if candidate teachers went through the drill in terms of these skills before they set out for teaching? What if this became an integral component of in-service teaching, renewed continuously?
