The Role of Communication in Student Achievement
	Renee Robinson, Saint Xavier University, Chicago, IL

The primary focus of the institution of public education is student achievement. 
As a result, a significant amount of resources have been allocated to studying 
the student learning process. This paper continues to examine student 
achievement through a communicative lens and provides a literature review of 
the communication factors known to influence student learning. Factors such as 
immediacy, perceived caring, and communication apprehension in the teacher-student 
relationship are investigated. Suggestions for educating and training public 
school teachers about instructional communication are also included.
