Upgrading Multicultural Education.
Lum, John; Magid, Armand
A number of processes and practices relevant to the improvement of multicultural education are discussed: (1) length of time spent on multicultural studies; (2) orientation of multicultural education; (3) field trips and classroom visitations by outside resource persons; (4) multicultural versus multiethnic instructional processes; (5) class discussions of behavior toward others; (6) activities; (7) cooperative endeavors; (8) rotation of ethnic or cultural mix; (9) bilingual or foreign language learning experiences; and (10) experiential and communication objectives rather than rote learning. Two multicultural education programs are described: a multicultural strand for social studies courses; and "Man: A Creative, Rational, and Organized Species" (MACRO/S), a multicultural source of study which compares people across history, geography, and culture.
