Prosser, Michael H., Comp.
This guide for the speech curriculum includes three separate but interrelated sections: intercultural communication syllabuses, communication and social change/development syllabuses, and international communication syllabuses--media emphasis. Each section contains a number of syllabuses originally designed for various speech courses at schools in 18 states. A sample syllabus designed by Dr. Njoku Awa at Cornell University is entitled "Intercultural Communication" and utilizes two texts--"Intercultural Communication: A Reading," by Larry Samover; and "Intercommunication Among Nations and Peoples," by Michael Prosser. The major objectives of the course are to help students grasp some of the problems inherent in intercultural communication and to provide a forum where American and foreign students can explore together the complexities in decoding culturally related verbal and nonverbal cues. The course systematically examines linguistic/extralinguistic, social, psychological, racial, ethnic, and regional barriers to communication, discussing such topics as cultural relativism, international versus intercultural communication, and nonverbal intercultural cues. An extensive bibliography is included. (TS)
