Cultural Communications.
Armas, Jose
It is too often taken for granted that the communication process with culturally different children takes place as readily as it might with children from Anglo cultures. Most teachers receive training in verbal and formal communication skills; children come to school with nonverbal and informal communication skills. This initially can create problems of communication breakdown. To complicate the situation, nonverbal messages that do not support verbal communication messages assure communication breakdown. This paper proposes cultural differences as the number one consideration for the school when it deals with children from different cultures and provides recommendations for teachers, curriculum, and community on affecting the change required to meet the educational needs of the culturally different child.
