American Diversity: A Bibliography of Resources on Racial and Ethnic Minorities for Pennsylvania Schools.
Haller, Elizabeth S., Comp.
This bibliography has been compiled to assist school personnel in locating resources to implement the Curriculum Regulation adopted by the Pennsylvania State Board of Education in May 1968. This regulation requires that each course of the history of the United States and of Pennsylvania taught in the elementary and secondary schools include the major contributions made by Negroes and other racial and ethnic groups. Sections are devoted to each of the major minorities, multi-ethnic materials for two or more of these groups, and a sampling of the many ethnic groups which have contributed to American cultural diversity. The final section lists resources for intergroup education to provide perspective, background content, and suggested methodology to assist school personnel in the implementation of the Curriculum Regulations, appended. The sections are sub-divided into these categories: Social Interpretation, History, Biography, Arts (Art, Drama, Music, Literature), Fiction, Guides, Teaching Units, Bibliographies, and Audiovisual Materials. This guide expands the original resource guide, From Slavery to Protest, designed to incorporate African American materials with those on other minority groups. (Author/DJB)
