Use of International Media Events as an Instructional Tool in the Basic Course: The Spring 1989 Protests in China as Perception Case Study.
This paper proposes the use of international media events as instructional tools in the basic college communications course. The international media event examined, as one such application, is the spring, 1989 student protests in China. This type of instructional tool offers an excellent means of integrating world events into the curriculum. As international trade and exchange continues to grow, it is increasingly important for students to be aware of other cultures and how they contrast with the United States on interpersonal, organizational, and societal levels.
