Asian American Curriculum Guide: Elementary.
Saint Paul Public Schools, Minn.
Designed to meet the need for elementary school students to understand the status, needs, and contributions of Asian Americans, this curriculum guide was developed as a result of an in-service teacher education workshop. The basic premise of the guide is the recognition that student awareness and understanding of Asian Americans should be developed through integrating an Asian American curriculum into ongoing curricula. Lesson plans for the guide are arranged in grade level order from kindergarten through sixth grade with one lesson for grades five through nine. Lessons are included for subjects such as social studies, music, math, reading, and language arts. All lessons follow the same format, with a title, key concepts, generalizations, behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, evaluative procedures, and resources and materials. Worksheets follow each lesson when needed. Supplementary materials provide additional information on specific aspects of the Asian American heritage. These materials include games and an annotated bibliography of print and non-print materials. (Author/PMR)
