Classic articles on intercultural learning and the study abroad experience,
This review is from: Education for the Intercultural Experience (Paperback)
This is not a new book, but rather a classic and for this reason, it should be on the bookshelves of libraries and study abroad offices. Here's where you'll find the theories that support your work, and you'll want to refer to them. This is where you can find Milton Bennett's outline of the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity, and Janet Bennett's discussion of "cultural marginality" and Cornelius Grove and Ingemar Torbiorn's article about intercultural adjustment and behavior, as well as articles by Bruce La Brack on Re-entry, Richard Brislin on the use of a culture-general assimilator, and much more, all from well-respected and well-known scholars and practioners including of course, Michael Paige who add his own contributions on the intensity factors and trainer competencies.
Now that it's available used, find one in good condition because you will crack open the spine repeatedly if you work with any aspect of student exchange or international education.
