Frederick, Erica Hughes 2021 Denison University

Frederick, Erica Hughes

Collage

A family of field mice, who live in a stone wall on an abandoned farm, have been gathering supplies for the winter. Frederick, however, has not lifted a finger. They accuse him of being lazy, but he claims he’s gathering things just as important as food- the sun’s rays, colors, and words. When winter comes, the food runs out, but Frederick’s unique supplies and poetic delivery sustain the mice.

La Plus Grande Maison Du Monde, Jenni Messner

A young snail tells his father that he wants to have the biggest house in the world. His father tells him a story to explain why it is better to have a smaller house. In the story a young snail learns how to make his shell grow large and sprout cone-shaped domes in all colors. When the other snails move on to find more food, the snail with the biggest house in the world is left alone and finally fades away. When anyone asked the little snail why he had such a small house, he would tell them the story ...

Sa Propre Couleur, Jacklyn Iverson

Collage

This is the story of a chameleon who is sad that he does not have a color of his own. He changes color wherever he goes. He tries to remain one color by staying on a leaf – but the leaf changes color with the seasons. He meets another chameleon who suggests they travel together. So they were green together, and yellow together and violet together and lived happily ever after.

Incorporating Digital Health Literacy Into Adult Esl Education On The Us-Mexico Border, Erika Mein, Brenda Fuentes, Francisco Soto Más, Andrés Muro 2021 University of Texas at El Paso

Incorporating Digital Health Literacy Into Adult Esl Education On The Us-Mexico Border, Erika Mein, Brenda Fuentes, Francisco Soto Más, Andrés Muro

Journal of Rhetoric, Professional Communication, and Globalization

The increasing digitization of information and communication has undoubtedly impacted the ways in which people in the United States access and interpret health information. Although the traditional emphasis of health literacy research has been the comprehension of health-related texts such as patient information forms, prescriptions, and medicine labels, the increased use of electronic means to locate health information requires more critical engagement with texts beyond basic comprehension. In accessing electronic health information, patients need to be able to navigate the vast amount of online health information and to interpret and synthesize health information across multiple sources (i.e. websites) while ...

An Intercultural Analysis Of Sources Of Medical Information In Spanish-Speaking Diabetes Patients, Marta Antón, Ulla Connor, Kathryn Lauten, Stephanie Balunda

Journal of Rhetoric, Professional Communication, and Globalization

Understanding and improving health literacy have become important goals in health communication. Research has shown that limited health literacy is associated with poor health outcomes and that it is more prevalent in culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The goals of this study are to describe English-speaking (ES) and Spanish-speaking (SS) diabetic patients’ perceptions of sources of health information, to identify the actions patients report taking in seeking that information, and to test reading comprehension of medical information among SS patients.

Data for this study were based on semi-structured interviews, life-story narratives, and a reading comprehension test with diabetic patients (43 ...

The New Scarlet Letter A: An Exploration Of The Power Of Online Informational Websites To Influence And Brand Those Impacted By Autism Spectrum Disorders, Barbi Smyser-Fauble

Journal of Rhetoric, Professional Communication, and Globalization

Technical communication is often perceived by the public as containing objective information that is supported by scientific data. Audiences of such products are unaware of the rhetoric employed within its content that works to perpetuate social constructions of dominant ideologies, including digital texts such as informational websites. This article presents a comparison of the rhetoric employed on two national websites, Autism Speaks and Generation Rescue that convey similar information on Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), but present ASDs differently in terms of language, tone, and lens. Through the acknowledgement of these differences, I posit that web sites affiliated with the medical ...


Fotonovelas And Anglo Designs In Health Communications For Spanish-Speaking Residents Along The U.S.-Mexico Border, Barry Thatcher 2021 New Mexico State University

Fotonovelas And Anglo Designs In Health Communications For Spanish-Speaking Residents Along The U.S.-Mexico Border, Barry Thatcher

Journal of Rhetoric, Professional Communication, and Globalization

This study compares the intercultural instructional designs, based on eight intercultural value sets, of two types of health communications for Spanish-speaking U.S.-Mexico border populations. The first design is the fotonovela, or photo drama pamphlet, an approach that is well developed in Latin America and modeled after the famous Latin American television soap opera genre of telenovelas. This design dramatizes health information in culturally appropriate ways. The second design is Anglo dominant, representing predominant rhetorical and cultural preferences of the United States. Grounded in a Texas Health Equity project, the research team created a fotonovela for septic maintenance for ...


Translating Health Care: Stories From Refugees, Providers, And Friends, Kevin Brooks, Miriam Mara 2021 North Dakota State University

Translating Health Care: Stories From Refugees, Providers, And Friends, Kevin Brooks, Miriam Mara

Journal of Rhetoric, Professional Communication, and Globalization

Drawing on interviews and participatory observation, this article weaves stories of translating healthcare told from the perspectives of refugees, health care providers, and friends. The research finds that while literal translations of documents and information are important to the health care process for refugees of New Americans, cultural translations of concepts like health care and preventive care are perhaps even more important. That translation, however, is not simple or literal either; refugees and New Americans may resist, or remain suspicious of, these concepts even once understood. Friends of refugees can provide an important role in helping with cultural and institutional ...
