Childers J H: Neuro-linguistic programming: Enhancing teacher-student communications.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education & Development 24(1): 32-39, 1985.
Abstract: Defines neurolinguistic programming (NLP) and discusses dimensions of the model that have applications for classroom teaching. The NLP model is designed to facilitate understanding of how people organize their experience, particularly those involving decision making, creativity, learning, and motivation. Basic to NLP are 2 principles: (1) that each individual develops a model of the world based on sensory information received through the senses, and (2) that how a person presents his/her communication will greatly affect how it is perceived by another person. NLP recognizes that all learning begins in the student's frame of reference. It is suggested that mastery of NLP effectively increases teachers' interpersonal skills and their ability to recognize students' representational preferences. Representational systems (including visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and olfactory experiences) and ways in which different individuals communicate their experiences (predicates, matched predicates, and mismatched predicates) are discussed.
