Cross-Culture Education

There are two different Latin roots of the English word “education".  They are “educare", which means to train or to mold, and “educere",  meaning to lead out. While the two meanings are quite different, they are both represented in the word "education” (Craft, M. 1984, Education for diversity. In: Education and cultural pluralism, ed. M. Craft, pp. 5-26. London and Philadelphia: Falmer Press.)

The appearance of the term "cross-cultural" in the titles of a number of college readers and writing textbooks beginning in the late 1980s can be attributed to a convergence of academic multiculturalism and the pedagogical movement known as Writing Across the Curriculum, which gave educators in the Social Sciences greater influence in composition pedagogy.
