Education 615L - Seminar in Crosscultural Comm

Furcolo Room W014
How is culture constructed through face-to-face interactions? How do race, language, and culture shape learning? What consequences exist for those differing from dominant norms? What evidence is there that participants are constructing interpretations, at times at odds with each other? What are the implications of this research for educators and diverse communities? In this course, we will survey how crosscultural communication has been researched, both for learning language and for examining its role in the academic progress of linguistically diverse learners.
