Construct the Culture from the Classroom Speaking: Ethnography of Chinese Graduate Assistants' Speaking in the U.S. Classrooms.
Xia, Yun
International graduate assistants pose questions for university administration. A study used ethnography of communication to examine the Chinese culture that Chinese graduate assistants bring to the United States classrooms, especially the culture pertaining to communication in the classrooms. Chinese graduate assistants speak from the code of honor in the United States classrooms: the "instructor-centered speaking." But they cannot avoid the influence of the United States classroom culture, which requires instructors to speak from the code of dignity. Chinese graduate assistants have the speaking "conflict" in the United States classrooms. Contains 18 references. (Author/RS)
