A Code of Ethics That Binds Multicultural Communicators: A Plan for Unifying Communication Educators and Students.
Flores, Norma Landa
This paper advances a plan for unifying communication educators and students. The paper first responds to Frank E.X. Dance's paper "This Above All" ("Spectra," 1982) and asserts that ethical K-12, college, and university communication educators should facilitate their students' exploration and integration of alternative perceptions and definitions to generate shared meanings embraced by both speakers and listeners, without compromising each other's core beliefs, values, or morals. It then responds in some detail to Kenneth E. Anderson's paper, "A Code of Ethics for Speech Communication" ("Spectra," 1984). The paper offers materials for developing a code of ethics that binds communicators and provides a values framework and moral structure of multicultural communication ethics. It also presents a model for developing a classroom speech to describe a multicultural collaborative interaction, including an audience collaboration questionnaire and assessment materials. The paper concludes with definitions of multicultural spoken interaction skills. Contains a figure, Multicultural Collaborative Communication, and 11 references. (NKA)
