Kipling's Cat: Learning from the New Student.
Pearce, Richard
International Schools Journal, v15 n2 p23-30 Apr 1996
International schools can benefit from new students' fresh vision. Some students exhibit "culture shock" on arrival, while others, like Kipling's cat, act as though "all places are alike to them." This article examines the newcomer's adjustment process by proposing a model of personal identity development and poses questions to test the theory against common experiences. (18 references) (MLH)
