Nonverbal factors in the education of Chinese American children : a film study by Malcolm Collier( Book )
4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
The research described in this paper examined nonverbal factors affecting the education of Chinese American children in bilingual/bicultural classrooms. The purpose was to define how such variables as interpersonal distance, arrangement and use of space, pace of participants, size of groups, use of time, and interpersonal synchrony influenced the behavior and response of students. The investigation also explored associations between language of instruction and these variables, as well as the effects of variations of classroom ethnic composition. Research methods involved analysis of research films of classrooms and film interviews with people associated with the classrooms and students. Findings showed that Chinese American students responded best to situations in which there were close interpersonal distances, a slow to moderate pace, arrangements that did not isolate individuals, and activities that involved group processes. They responded particularly well in situations with these characteristics that also involved considerable contextualization of subject matter and the use of time frames significantly longer than the American school norm. Such situations were characterized by high levels of interpersonal synchrony. These patterns were closely associated with use of Cantonese language in the classroom. Size of groups did not appear to be a significant factor, but the response of Chinese American students was adversely affected when proportions of non-Chinese students rose above a certain point.

A film study of classrooms in western Alaska by Malcolm Collier( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
The detailed description and analysis of how "pace" and "flow" affect the quality of interaction in five filmed cross-cultural classroom situations amongst the Alaskan Yupik Eskimos provide illustrations of how the educational process can be helped or hindered by the manner in which students and teachers come together. The film analysis finds distinct differences between Anglo and Native patterns of pace and movement: the slow pace of the Alaskan Natives is accompanied by a soft and rounded style of movement, while Anglos exhibit a fast to moderate pace with linear, abrupt movements. The pace of each group appears to be independent of the other when together and mutual adjustments in pace between groups are few. The analysis suggests that the discrepancy between the Anglo teachers and Native destroy the communication process in the classrooms. Even minor accommodations destroy the communication process in the classrooms. Even minor accomodations on the part of the teachers serve to improve somewhat on the unfortunate pattern. The study confirms the importance of Native teachers for educational success in Alaska, with the critical factor being the nature of their training. Regardless of educational paraphernalia, curriculum content, or even teacher dedication, education cannot occur if there is poor communication in the classroom. (Nec)
