Multicultural Education Guide for Grades 4, 5, and 8.
Millbrae School District, CA.
This resource guide, prepared by teachers, is designed to incorporate minority group studies into the district's social studies curriculum at levels 4, 5, and 8 as a start toward goals specified in the state law. Introductory material discusses the California Education Code requirements, local district policy, and the work of the curriculum development committee. The goal of this course is to offer children more complete information about five minority groups in the United States: Afro-Americans, American Indians, Chinese-Americans, Japenese-Americans, and Mexican-Americans, with an additional unit on Prejudice. Each unit is concept oriented; various topics to be explored are outlined with the appropriate grade level indicated. Objectives for the unit are given; materials of instruction and learning activities are described. Some teaching techniques used are: observation, field trip experiences, dramatizations and role playing, individual research, small and large group activities, educational games, critical thinking and comparative analysis. Resource materials are listed in the guide with student materials included for some units; in addition, a district bibliography, Materials Pertaining to Three Minority Groups: Negro-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and Oriental-Americans, is to be used.
