How Can Researchers Use Reactions to California's Proposition 187 as a Bridge between University, Community College and K-12 SCA Educators?
Flores, Norma Landa
This paper describes how the passage of California's Proposition 187 (which bars public social services to illegal immigrants) affects K-12, college, and university speech educators. The paper also describes how the Speech Communication Association (SCA) can use proactive rather than reactive methods of interacting with their Asian Pacific American, Black, and La Raza Caucus members to bring about a shift of philosophies and teaching paradigms in multicultural oral communication classrooms across the United States. The paper focuses on methods of incorporating culturally diverse teaching-learning styles in K-12, college, and university oral communication programs by using a cultural collaboration model of multicultural classroom management. Contains 21 references. Appendixes present an intercultural communication model and a description of multicultural public speaking communication variables. (Author/RS)
