Evaluation of In-Service "Curriculum Materials for Intergroup Relations: Language Arts."
Murray, Kay C.
The Human Relations Unit, in cooperation with the Bureau of Radio and Television, WNYE-TV, televised a teacher training workshop series. The overall aim of the course was to bring to the attention of the teacher the rich and relatively untouched resources to be found in the literature of minority groups of the United States. The course was designed to: (1) analyze language arts materials in order to acquaint teachers with the poetry, drama, and literature written by and about ethnic and minority groups; (2) explore the ways in which such materials can be used to promote better intergroup understanding and relationships; and, (3) illustrate techniques for presenting such materials to students. During the spring of 1968 an evaluation was conducted, the primary purposes of which were to measure the amount of information which teachers acquired from the course, and to determine the extent to which these teachers were able to utilize the techniques for communicating this content in the classroom.
