Expectations and Standards of International Students from Teachers and Peers
Dr. Anil Kumar Palla, Dr. Jerry Jackson, Kiran Kumar Palla

This paper will analyze much of the literature that already exists surrounding the ways that international students are exposed to expectations and standards on all sides from both teachers and peers. The differences in the ways that peers and teachers both put forth these expectations and standards will be analyzed in-depth here as well. In the process, some of the most prominent of literature on these topics will be examined, summarized, and reviewed. This will allow for a more retrospective and contemporary understanding of these concepts to be gleaned here. In analyzing each of these important elements, it will be made clear that there should be more unified expectations and standards unilaterally for the education system of the United States, but especially for these international students here. The gaps that exist in this regard will be examined and analyzed, and then discussed, within the literature here.
