Assignment 1 2

Feedback is defined in Communication Sciences and Disorders as “information provided

by the receiver to the sender” (Justice & Redle, 2014) in relation to communication. Feedback

can be in the form of linguistic feedback (words and/or sounds), nonlinguistic feedback (non-

verbal), and paralinguistic feedback (pitch of voice, pausing, etc). Effective communication

involves the transmission of the communication from the sender, reception of the communication

from the receiver, as well as feedback from the receiver back to the sender. Our cultural

background influences the type of feedback we provide during communication. There are many

ways that communication might vary culturally.

Culture encompasses a person’s beliefs, behavior, and values, which are shared by a

particular community (Battle, 2002). Aspects of cultural identity which might affect

communication are language, religion, geography, ethnicity, and race, among others. When

people of different cultures communicate, there may be some confusion. For instance, I recall a

story about a child who would not meet his teacher’s eyes when she spoke with him. She saw it

as disrespectful, until she learned that in his culture, it is disrespectful to look a person of

authority in the eye. There are many cases of geography making a difference in what people call

certain things – for instance, if I am in Maryland, I might order a sub sandwich, but in

Pennsylvania, it is called a hoagie. Not knowing these differences might make it difficult to

order a simple lunch. In addition, dialect and voice inflection have the possibility of affecting

communication. For example, I was born and raised in Maryland; my co-teacher in Detroit,

Michigan. Sometimes while pronouncing words in class, we both say the same word so that our

students can hear the differences; it really can be eye-opening.

Communication has many purposes, including instrumental (to ask for something),

regulatory (to give direction), interactional (social), personal (feelings), heuristic (to find out

information), imaginative (to tell stories), and informative (to provide information) (Justice &

Redle, 2014). With regard to Mr. Shen in Case Study 1-1, the communication purposes that

might be impacted by his hearing loss include interactional and personal. Interactional

communication is using communication in a social way. One of the activities that Mr. Shen

refused to partake in after his auto accident was talking on the phone with his daughter, the other

his daily walks. His personal communication was also affected, as he withdrew from everyone

outside of his immediate family. As the visit with an audiologist showed that Mr. Shen has

trouble following along in conversations. This can be incredibly frustrating. I do recall my

father having a hearing aid and, even using that, he often became frustrated at not being able to

understand a conversation that he was involved in.

We can not do much without communication – we communicate in different ways

constantly in our daily lives. Understanding the nuances of communication is vitally important

to be able to interact with each other. In the school setting, I believe that it is even more

important; as we interact with a culturally diverse school population, we must understand our

students’ communication purposes and nuances.

Cultural background can significantly impact the way we give and receive feedback during communication. Here are some ways that communication may vary culturally: Directness: Some cultures are more direct in their communication, while others are more indirect. For example, in some cultures, people may give feedback very directly and openly, while in others, they may give feedback in a more subtle way, using non-verbal cues or implying their message.
