Suburban Interracial Education Projects. A Resource Booklet.
Caliguri, Joseph P.
This resource booklet is directed toward communities and school districts interested in preparing or orienting school populations for intergroup relations with minority groups. The 22 projects described grew out of a course on Intergroup Relations with 300 participating teachers from the greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Seven projects focus on preparing for the problem of multi-racial classrooms, discussing such topics as student and faculty attitudes, prejudices, surveys of population, inservice programs, and teaching methods for improving intergroup relations. A second group of projects is designed to assist the suburban teacher in dealing with the problems of the multi-racial classroom and also help the suburban student learn about and understand differing minority group students. These include resource units on human relations, self-concept, and racial understanding. Finally, 4 projects are provided which will assist the teacher in working with other classroom problems (the underachiever, the discipline problem, and the social isolate.) Each project is outlined in the following format: 1) Subject, 2) Background, 3) Objective, 4) Procedure, 5) Limitations, and, 6) Conclusions, Evaluations, or Recommendations. Some of the projects also list sample sources materials for units, survey questions, test questions, or other project activities. An annotated bibliography of sources on Intergroup Education is appended. (Author/JSB)
