Communicating in Today's Classroom

Description:
Cross-cultural misunderstandings are a fact that teachers must recognize. Aspects of culture are more than just language. Sapir-Whorf hypothesis and Edward Hall's theory are important. Teachers should assume that students want to cooperate to make clear responses, to be respectful, and polite. Cross-cultural understanding between teacher, student, administrator, and counselor is important. Keeping communication lines open is vital, which includes a knowledge of the background of the student. From the JAE multicultural education issue.
