THE DEVELOPMENT OF APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS AND RELATED MATERIALS ON RACIAL AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY IN AMERICA. FINAL REPORT.
GIBSON, JOHN S.
A RESEARCH PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED AT TUFTS UNIVERSITY BETWEEN MARCH 1, 1965, AND SEPTEMBER 14, 1967, FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEVELOPING INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AND TEACHING STRATEGIES WHICH WOULD PROVIDE MORE EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING ABOUT RACIAL AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY IN AMERICAN LIFE. TWO FUNDAMENTALS ARE WOVEN INTO THE DESIGN OF THESE MATERIALS--(1) COVERT AND OVERT BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS ARE LEARNED OR TAUGHT, RATHER THAN BEING INNATE, AND (2) DIVERSITY IN TERMS OF RACE, RELIGION, NATIONAL ORIGIN, APPEARANCE, AND BEHAVIOR IS ONE OF THE MOST POSITIVE ADVANTAGES OF AMERICAN LIFE. THE RESULTS OF THE PROJECT INCLUDE THE DEVELOPMENT OF LOWER GRADE AND UPPER GRADE UNITS ON RACE AND CULTURE IN AMERICAN LIFE, THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUGGESTED TEACHING STRATEGIES AND BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCE SECTIONS FOR TEACHERS USING THESE UNITS, AND THE PRESENTATION OF A FULL REPORT ON RECOMMENDED EVALUATION PROCEDURES AND INSTRUMENTS WITH RESPECT TO RACE AND CULTURE IN AMERICAN LIFE.
