Trainers in Multicultural Education: Final Report.
Tanaka, Masako N.; Stripp, Steven
Major issues regarding the feasibility of training on-site educators to become evaluators of multicultural programs in classrooms are discussed. The issues evolved from a 10-month training/research project in California. Four sections comprise the report. Section I provides an introduction to the project. Section II discusses the two phases of the research study. The first phase followed the trainers' workshop on provisioning the multicultural classroom and the second phase followed the workshop on activities in the multicultural classroom. Section III describes the quantitative and qualitative aspects of a special evaluation study which used pre- and posttests with experimental and control groups. Section IV lists six outcomes of the study: (1) the development of six training units on multicultural education (Setting up the Multicultural Classroom, Selecting Children's Books with a Multicultural Perspective, Communicating and Working with Parents in the Multicultural Classroom, The Child's Self Concept in the Multicultural Classroom, Language in the Multicultural Classroom, and Developing Sense Perception in the Multicultural Classroom); (2) two one-week training workshops in multicultural education for trainers in the San Francisco Bay area; (3) the initiation of a network of trainers in the Bay area; (4) the development of an interactive team approach to evaluation in multicultural classrooms; and (5) development of four instruments for use in evaluating the multicultural classroom. The table of contents of the six units, copies of pre- and posttests, and scoring criteria are provided. (KC)
