The ability to construct a grammatically correct, stylistically interesting document is only one aspect of English literacy. Writers must also be able to identify terms and ideas which are value-laden, and re-state these ideas in ways that are understandable to all who read them. Ideas that “make sense” in one cultural context may be incomprehensible in another. Successful communication requires those living and working in the global environment to understand and communicate precisely within the cultural context of those with whom they come in contact. This presentation discusses how global English can be taught within the content of any management course using English as the language of instruction and requiring written assignments, and will share a grading rubric faculty can use to assess the “cultural friendliness” of student writing.
