Minority Groups in Anglo-America: An Introduction and Bibliography of Selected Materials.
As a result of a resolution of the Association of Christian School Administrators this paper was produced on minorities in the United States and Canada. The groups considered here are not only the racial groups, but the various religious sects in both countries. Major emphasis, in terms of numbers of resources discussed or listed, is on the Negroes, North American Indians, and Spanish Americans. Other groups include the Orientals, Jews, and the Amish. The first section deals with the rationale for including teaching about minorities in the social studies programs of schools. A second section covers materials for students K-12 as well as ideas which will stimulate interest in studying minority groups. A third section concerns resource materials for teacher use. A final section gives a list of organizations which are specifically concerned with minorities. (SBE)
