Culture, Communication, and Competence: A Commentary on Variables Affecting Social and Academic Behavior
Horner, Rob
Journal of Behavioral Education, v20 n4 p306-311 Dec 2011
The editors of this special issue have recruited six papers focused on the ways that language and communication interact with culture to influence student behavior. Two themes that emerge from these papers are the fundamental role of communication in learning and living, and the impact of culture on the functions of communication. The present commentary is offered in admiration for the work of the authors, and with the goal of emphasizing common messages that may guide both future research and practice.
