Responding to Chinese-American Children.
This guide is designed to help teachers gain an insight into the background and culture of Chinese American students. Three articles describing the Chinatown community in San Francisco focus on problems which are characteristic of Chinese American communities throughout the United States. The appendices that follow provide statistics about population in San Francisco and in other cities of the U.S. In addition to the articles and statistical data, the paper reports on a workshop held to analyze portrayals of Chinese and Chinese Americans in children's books. Two annotated bibliographies, one of general works about Chinese Americans in the U.S., and the other of children's books which depict Chinese and Chinese American culture in a realistic manner, are included.
