Edited by:

March 2010 | 488 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The SAGE Handbook of Communication and Instruction functions as a comprehensive resource for scholars, graduate students, and general readers interested in the intersections of communication and instruction, irrespective of paradigm, method, or disciplinary background. Each chapter selection in the Handbook roots contemporary work in disciplinary foundations and identifies avenues for future inquiry.

Features & Benefits:

- Compiles original research and reviews of research in the intersections of communication and instruction from key figures in the disciplines, not only helping readers see present and future trajectories in this area of inquiry in foundational lines of research but also providing a sense of how this area has grown along a series of different theoretical and methodological approaches

- Helps readers identify avenues for research, in consultation with both key figures and innovators in this area of inquiry

- Serves as the primary contemporary and multi-paradigmatic guide to the study of the intersections of communication and instruction, recognizing all paradigmatic approaches and methods as meaningful

The Handbook will not only strengthen readers' interest in and comfort with different paradigmatic approaches to communication and instruction, but also make possible a generation of well-rounded, comprehensive, and effective researchers, capable of reading a broad array of work from a variety of approaches.
