Cultural Orientation at Bataan: Merging Trends.
Redding, J. Patrick
Passage, v1 n3 p22-26 1985
The intensive, pre-arrival training program provided by the International Catholic Migration Commission at the Philippine Refugee Processing Center in Bataan for Vietnamese, Khmer, and Lao adult refugees on route to the United States is in the process of self-examination and development. Three trends are emerging for new program directions. The first is an increased understanding of the student population, including acknowledgement of their membership in a refugee culture and increased awareness of the barriers separating teacher and student as well as basic demographic characteristics. The second trend is a shift in instructional content from primarily information-giving materials and methods to an approach providing a balance of information, skills, and attitudes. The third trend is the emerging role of the teacher as a cross-cultural trainer specializing in intercultural communication and providing a role model for students. (MSE)
