How Cultural Differences Affect Written and Oral Communication: The Case of Peer Response Groups.
Nelson, Gayle L.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n70 p77-84 Sum 1997
Peer response groups contribute to students' effectiveness as writers in any field, but cultural differences in communication affect interactions within the group. Culture-based dimensions on which communication may differ include individualism/collectivism, power distance, concept of "face," and communication style. Recommendations are made for addressing these issues among non-native English speakers at the college level. (Author/MSE)
