Aim & Scope:

Three types of manuscripts will be considered for publication in the journal. First,instructional activities that can be conducted in either the K-12 or college classroom will be considered. Second, manuscripts focused on communication education assessment of student learning, classroom practices (K-12 or college), or program development will be considered, and third, original teaching activity with a link to assessment articles will be encouraged.

Original Teaching Activities

Single Class Activities. Communication educators in all contexts are invited to submit original teaching activities that can be implemented in the classroom. Teaching activities that can be used in any communication course (i.e., public speaking, hybrid, communication research methods, communication technologies, communication theory, family, gender, health, interpersonal, intercultural, mass, organizational, public relations, rhetoric, small group) are welcome. Each submission should contain the following components: (1) a brief title; (2) the course(s) for which the activity is intended; (3) the objective(s) for the activity; (4) a brief theoretical rationale for conducting the activity; (5) a description/explanation of the activity, including any preparation/preliminary steps and materials needed; (6) a debriefing paragraph, including typical results; (7) an appraisal of the activity, including any limitations or variations; and (8) references. Single Class submissions should generally contain no more than 2000 words. Unit Activities. Instructors frequently create an original teaching activity that is conducted throughout an entire class unit (e.g., Relational communication unit on "Conflict in Relationships") that spans several days or weeks. A unit activity should follow the same format as described for the single class activity, and should contain no more than 2500 words. Semester-long Activities. Original teaching activities that outline a semester-long project or approach to an entire course are also encouraged. These manuscripts should follow the same format as described for single class activity and should generally contain no more than 3000 words.

Original Teaching Activity-to-Assessment Articles

In many cases, original teaching activities are assessed for meeting student needs and teacher goals. With this in mind, authors may be encouraged to create a series of articles that create a link between practice and assessment. For this series, the author may submit BOTH articles simultaneously or the editor may invite the author to submit an assessment activity based on the published original teaching activity (single, unit, or semester-long). These two manuscripts should follow the same format as described for one of the three class activities and the educational assessment article (described below) with an established link between the two clearly discussed.

Educational Assessment Articles

Communication educators in all contexts are invited to submit original assessment research. Assessment involves systematic reflection of instructional practices and allows communication educators to monitor student learning as well as improve the quality of specific courses or overall programs. Assessment articles should be data driven. Data can be qualitative or quantitative. Assessment research provides educators an opportunity to modify their instructional practices based on the results of such studies. Each submission should contain the following components: (1) a brief title; (2) the course or program for which the assessment was conducted; (3) an abstract of no more than 100 words; (4) a brief statement of the problem and theoretical rationale; (5) the research question(s) or hypothesis(es); (6) the method for data collection; (7) the results; (8) a discussion of the implications of the results on instructional practice; and (9) references. Submissions should generally contain no more than 8,000 words.

There are several stylistic and formal requirements for submissions to Communication Teacher , details of which can be found in the Instructions for Authors.

In 2004, Communication Teacher became a ’Web First’ journal. Published by Routledge, each issue is available electronically to current subscribers in January, April, July and October. Subscribers then receive a printed volume issued at the end of the year.

Unless specifically indicated otherwise, articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, including screening by the editor and review by at least two anonymous referees.
