Ethnic Heritage Study Program: A Learning Experience for the Colorado Educator.
Martinez, Roger D.
This ethnic attitude test is designed to be a learning experience in which Colorado elementary and secondary teachers can share ideas, change attitudes if need be, clarify information, and/or reinforce what they knew to be true all along about the multicultural heritage of the state. Participants are asked to indicate the extent of their agreement with 40 statements concerning ethnic or cultural studies and then compare their choices to the point of view expressed by the Colorado State Department of Education, a position which supports the view that every child should, as an integral part of his education, learn about his own and his neighbor's ethnic heritage and learn to respect cultural differences. The statements probe teacher attitudes concerning special programs for American Indians, Blacks, and Mexican Americans; ethnic stereotypes and cliches; self-determination rights of minorities to control their own programs; and the role of teachers, ethnic leaders, and parents in program planning.
