Non verbal communication can also develop positive relationships. For example if a feel that a student is coping in lesson without me being next to them at all the time and a simple smile to them across the classroom will show them that I am there should they need my help, but also shows that I’m not pressurising them by being at their side constantly. This would help the student’s confidence in working alone.
Another reason for effective communication is that if a student has had a problem in a previous lesson with another student you may not be aware of this. It could then possibly continue and escalate into something more at a later time. Being informed by talking to teachers or support staff of the previous lesson they can tell you of the situation. This therefore would mean that you can keep a closer eye on that particular student and should anything occur later in the day you could intervene. Talking the to the student and letting them know you are aware of the situation will also make them feel more at ease in the classroom and putting their mind at rest.
