This unique multicultural reader introduce students both to a wide variety of cultures in the United States and to the experience of being an American in other cultures, allowing them to analyze similarities and differences and to reflect on their own cultural background. This appealing collection of accessible, engaging readings provides thought-provoking material for class discussion as well as compelling ideas for writing. Crossing Cultures uses thematic units that explore common experiences (Education, Growing Up, Families, Communicating) to provide insights into the wide variety of cultural communities that coexist in the United States. And in units called Changing Places and Americans Abroad, provocative readings help students understand the experience of being "the other" in an unfamiliar culture. Straight-forward, accessible pedagogy includes thoughtful unit introductions and reading headnotes. Exercises following each reading explore both the issues raised and the way the writing presents these issues, and also provide writing prompts. "Synthesis" activities at the end of each unit are new to this edition.
