Teaching About Minorities in Classroom Situations: Resource Bulletin for Teachers in the Secondary Schools. Curriculum Bulletin, 1967-68 Series, No. 23.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
This teaching guide for the study of minority groups in America is intended to help the secondary school student (1) improve his self-image through an appreciation of his heritage, (2) recognize the contributions of the diverse groups that make up American society, (3) realize that interdependence is a part of American life, and (4) develop skills in interpersonal relationships. Typical problems arising in newly integrated schools and appropriate reactions to these problems are outlined. Background information on the culture, history, and aspirations of nine American minority groups is provided, in addition to brief guidelines for lessons on the building of America; on the causes of riots; and on developing definitions of an American, a neighborhood, and a democracy. Activities and lists of materials--including books, articles, films, filmstrips, recordings, and pictures--are suggested. (JS)
