Teaching culture : strategies for intercultural communication by H. Ned Seelye( Book )

42 editions published between 1974 and 2006 in English and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the assertion that language and culture study are best brought together when the teacher is effective in the affective as well as cognitive and skills domains, teaching strategies and activities are presented that combine specific teaching techniques and ideas with other human and cultural resources in and out of the classroom. Chapters discuss: when and in what language culture should be taught; what "culture" refers to and its connection with language; approaches to understanding how societies evolve different ways to satisfy their needs; seven goals of cultural instruction; performance objectives for each of the seven goals; developing effective learning activities for each of the performance objectives; two techniques to sensitize students to the miscommunication accompanying interaction with those of another culture (empathetic literature and minidramas); three techniques for teaching cultural concepts (culture assimilators, culture capsules, culture clusters); approaches to helping students ask significant questions; measuring shifts in attitude toward the target culture; stresses and challenges of biculturalism; and suggestions for implementing a curriculum fostering intercultural communication. An extensive bibliography is included. (Mse)

Do you sometimes wonder if you really belong any place? Do you feel that you belong everywhere but nowhere, that people don't understand you anywhere? Are you one of the many millions who have roots in different cultures? Do the common labels of nationality, race, language, or ethnicity fit too tightly on your complex and diverse self? For anyone searching for a more satisfying understanding of the dynamics of living on the cultural borderlands, Between Cultures: Developing Self-Identity in a World of Diversity makes you more effective as you move across cultural divides; helps you sort out the confusion inherent in being multicultural and realize your creative potential; shows you why traditional labels of identity are deficient, and how everyone has multicultural ancestors; suggests new ways to look at yourself and new metaphors of identity that transcend cultural boundaries; and gives you an easy method to craft your own special identity

Evaluating quality circles in U.S. industry : a feasibility study by H. Ned Seelye( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study determined that it is feasible to conduct nationwide experimental research into the effectiveness of the most structured form of participative management--small, specially-trained work groups formed along the lines of Japanese quality control circles. The number of 'quality circles' in U.S. industry began to increase dramatically in 1980 and continues to gain wide popularity. Identification was made of over 1500 U.S. work sites with functioning quality circles. Of these, descriptive data were obtained on 713 sites, the vast majority of which were willing to participate in an evaluation of their circles effectiveness and which were past the initial 'pilot' stage of quality circles implementation--suggested criteria for inclusion in Phase II research. (A discriminant analysis determined that the characteristics of sites that were willing to participate in Phase II research did not differ substantially from those not willing to participate.) The range of sites identified is sufficiently broad to constitute a cross-section of U.S. organizations with functioning quality circles. From this pool a Phase II sample can be drawn
