About this product
- DescriptionCultural differences play a part in communication breakdowns between students and teachers, and only a complete understanding of the model that English instructors use when teaching writing gives us an insight into the reasons why. This book observes and analyzes the communication patterns of Lati students in an English course at the college level, closely observing the interaction between Lati students and the teacher, as well as between Lati students and other student groups in the class. Learning to Write as a Hostile Act for Lati Students concludes that cultural differences - and the resulting miscommunications - significantly contribute to the negative impressions Lati students have about the writing process and English courses. Understanding these differences is crucial to improving the teaching of writing to Lati and other mirity students.
