Many faculty and graduate students from other countries expect language difficulties when they teach, but are unprepared for other surprises: different cultures make different assumptions about the academic background of college students, how students learn, the appropriate roles of teachers and students, and even the fundamental purpose of a college education.

The third edition of "Teaching American Students" explains the expectations of undergraduates at American colleges and universities and offers practical strategies for teaching, including how to give clear presentations, how to teach interactively, and how to communicate effectively. Also included are illustrative examples as well as advice from international faculty and teaching assistants. Appendices offer concrete suggestions on topics from planning the first day of class to grading papers and problem sets.

A highly readable, practical guide for international teaching assistants and an excellent reference for ITA educators. Each chapter provides useful information about teaching U.S. undergraduate students. Anecdotes and quotations from ITAs and faculty enhance and lend authenticity to the suggestions.--Rosslyn Smith, Professor Of Spanish And Linguistics And Vice Provost For Outreach And Extended Studies, Texas Tech University
