Transactional Analysis is a theory developed by Dr. Eric Berne in the 1950s. Dr. Berne proposed that verbal communication is the core of all social interactions, especially the face-to-face communication. We find that some people are authoritative in their tone and body language; some are vulnerable – childlike while some are curt -straight forward and tend to take instant decisions. Classroom dynamics too are similar in nature. Students from different backgrounds with different aptitude and attitude communicate in the classroom. Teachers sometimes find it difficult to understand the transaction pattern of children leading to misunderstanding and misconceptions. So to provide an extra edge to the teachers the understanding of Transactional analysis comes very handy.
