Learning about the Peoples of Connecticut: Teachers' Manual. The Peoples of Connecticut Multicultural Ethnic Heritage Series. Pilot Edition.
Weibust, Patricia S.
This teacher's manual examines the activities, attitudes, and approaches necessary for teaching about ethnic groups and provides guidelines for classwork. It is specifically designed to accompany a series of units about Irish, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Blacks, Poles, Armenians, Scots and Scotch Irish, and Jews in Connecticut. The first section of the manual reviews five problems inherent in teaching about a foreign group or culture. The second section defines the general concept of an ethnic group and identifies information to be included in an ethnic studies curriculum, who should be involved in both teaching and learning ethnic studies, and the most effective strategies for learning about other ethnic groups. The third section offers specific suggestions for teachers planning to use the Connecticut series, with outlines of content and classroom activities applicable to the study of any ethnic group. A bibliography containing materials of a general nature on teaching ethnic studies, ethnicity in America, and cross-cultural education is appended. (DL)
