Personally Confronting Intercultural Communication Problems--An Intensified, Extended Process.
To personalize a course in intercultural communication at a northwestern university, each student is allowed to design an individual project concentrating on a single area of prejudice held by each student. Students select a target area and then treat the problem (and the communication breakdown it represents) as the real enemy. They choose from a variety of sources of information and contact intercultural resources in grappling with their prejudices. All students record their progress in journals, which are handed in at midterm and at the completion of the project. Oral and written reports are required at midterm and at the conclusion of the course. (An outline of the personal project given to all students at the beginning of the course is included.) (DF)
