Culture and Constructs: Communicating Attitudes and Values in the Foreign Language Classroom.
Kramsch, Claire J.
Foreign Language Annals, v16 n6 p437-48 Dec 1983
The psychology of personal constructs is suggested to help students interpret cultural facts and events in light of underlying attitudes and values. By constructing both their own and foreign values and extending them, students can find bridges to another culture and discover alternatives to their own cultural patterns of thought. (MSE)
