BEHIND THE HEADLINES--A PROGRAM TECHNIQUE FOR STUDYING INTERGROUP RELATIONS.
B'nai B'rith, New York, NY. Anti-Defamation League.
AN UNDERSTANDING OF HUMAN RELATIONS CAN BE DEVELOPED BY MEANS OF NEW MEDIA. PROCEDURES ARE GIVEN TELLING HOW TO USE A NEWS ITEM AS A STIMULUS FOR RESEARCH ON THE RELEVANT FACTS BEHIND A REPORTED EVENT AND HOW TO USE SUPPLEMENTARY READING AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES TO GAIN A CLEARER UNDERSTANDING OF MEANINGS BEHIND THE HEADLINES. USE IS INTENDED FOR SCHOOLS AT ALL LEVELS AND FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS. AREAS DISCUSSED INCLUDE--DISCRIMINATION IN HOUSING, EMPLOYMENT, AND EDUCATION, MINORITY GROUP STATUS, POLITICAL EXTREMISM, INTERRELIGIOUS CONFLICT, AND ANTISEMITISM. EACH SECTION IS ORGANIZED FOR USE AS A COMPLETE UNIT IN THE CLASSROOM. THE OUTLINE INCLUDES--ACTUAL NEWSPAPER HEADLINES, BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE STORY OR THE PRINCIPLE INVOLVED IN THE INCIDENT, QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION AND READING MATERIALS RELEVANT TO THE PROBLEM, AUDIOVISUAL AIDS, AND ACTION PROJECTS WHICH ARE INTENDED TO TRANSLATE THE ABSTRACT PROBLEM INTO A LEARNING EXPERIENCE. IF OTHER PRESS REPORTS ARE TO BE USED, THE FOLLOWING STEPS CONSTITUTE THE METHOD TO BE APPLIED--SELECT THE SIGNIFICANT HEADLINES IN THE NEWS, GATHER RELEVANT INFORMATION AND HISTORICAL FACTS FROM MANY SOURCES, USE AS MANY OTHER KINDS OF LEARNING EXPERIENCES IN ADDITION TO READING AS POSSIBLE, SUMMARIZE, EVALUATE, AND FORMULATE PRINCIPLES OF INTERGROUP RELATIONS, APPLYING THEM TO NEW SITUATIONS.
