Ethnography and Classroom Communication: Taking an "Emic" Perspective.
Garcia, Georgia Earnest
Topics in Language Disorders, v12 n3 p54-66 May 1992
This article draws on sociolinguistics and educational anthropology to discuss (1) the concept of communicative competence in general and in the classroom setting in particular; and (2) findings from studies of home-school cultural discontinuities. The ability to empathize and understand is seen to help teachers and clinicians bridge differences between home and school. (DB)
