Smith, Calvin N.
This paper outlines a method of teaching international and intercultural communication, which has proved successful at the graduate level at Eastern Illinois University in meeting the following minimal goals: providing a uniform set of definitions concerning crosscultural communication, allowing an in-depth examination of the unique intercultural communication problems between the general population and ethnic groups emigrating to America, providing extensive experience in interacting with people of other cultures, encouraging insight into methods to help overcome cultural barriers, and allowing experiences in investigating, analyzing, and reporting on a culture of the students' choice. Attached to this report is a daily schedule of class activities. (KS)
