Intercultural Communication Training Manual, Vol. 1.
Bean, Eliot D.; Brown, Richard T.
The purpose of this manual is to provide a course development method that deals with all aspects of intercultural communication, not just the linguistic aspect. The first chapter orients the reader to the approach of the manual. Chapters 2 and 3 provide specific steps that guide the developer through all stages of course development. Chapter 4 presents a model of communication processing, describes the kinds of information and processing abilities individuals must have, and gives recommendations for collecting this data. Chapter 5 presents an outline of culture content and organization including topics which deal with the activities, practices, and technology of peoples as well as the groups they belong to; these topics are explained and exemplified, sources of cultural information are discussed, and a filing system for cultural data is provided. Chapter 6 presents the empirically determined interaction modes and their realization in illustrative prototype models. (NTIS)
