Abstract

Interactions between teachers and students occur rapidly in and out of a classroom. A good teacher-student relationship motivates and enhances the teaching and learning process. One of the most significant factors is teacher communication behaviour. This conceptual paper purports to investigate the multidimensional aspect of teacher communication behaviour and its effect on student’s motivation towards science learning. Based on a thorough review of existing literature, The Teacher Communication Behaviour Questionnaire (TCBQ) and Student’s Motivation Towards Learning Science (SMTSL) Questionnaire could be used to explore the factors of teacher’s communication behaviours and its relationship to students’ motivation in learning science among primary school students. From the result results it will be of possible benefit specifically for school administrators and teacher preparation programs. Teachers, however, may also use the teacher communication behaviour to evaluate an indicator of their communication skills
