The World in One Semester: International Communication Partners
Heinz, Bettina
Communication Teacher, v18 n3 p87-90 Jul 2004
This activity describes a four-part project that has been developed and employed in sophomore- and senior-level undergraduate courses in international and/or intercultural communication. This project helps students understand how they communicate due to their immersion in US mainstream culture and American ethnic co-cultures and how others communicate with them based on their national and ethnic cultural origins. Course readings and discussion emphasize intercultural sensitivity, cross-cultural adaptability, empathy, and intercultural communication competence. A list of references and suggested readings is included.
