A First Course in Intercultural Communication.
Goodyear, F. H.; Williams, Patrick L.
The Texas Christian University course description, outline, and supporting bibliography deal with the problems of intercultural, interracial communication. The course plan begins with the thesis that racism is institutionalized and that the eradication of racism requires changes in individuals' awareness of their own hidden discriminatory feelings. The classroom activities described ask students to play educational reverse-role-playing games, interview members of oppressed minorities, and become familiar with other races and cultures through association. Readings in interpersonal, interracial intercommunication are assigned, and written papers about the students' course experiences are required. A bibliography of books and articles is appended. (CH)
