Abstract

This chapter proposes that international teaching assistants upon entering the U.S. to assume their duties be oriented in such a fashion that they become conversant with the pedagogy, culture, and organization of U.S. education. The Teaching Fellow Program of Syracuse University is designed to provide a teaching, guiding and mentoring relationship of seasoned Teaching Assistants specially chosen to assist these new domestic and international student Teaching Assistants.
