Ethnic Heritages and Horizons: An Expanding Awareness.
Ethnic Affairs Committee of Baltimore County, MD.; Essex Community Coll., MD.
This publication contains seminar papers and the description of a workshop program focusing on how to incorporate community resources into ethnic heritage studies programs at all educational levels. The publication is the result of a federally funded ethnic studies project which conducted a seminar and a workshop for community members and educators of Baltimore, Maryland, to present procedures for using community resources and to discuss guidelines for training teachers to incorporate ethnic studies into their curricula. The papers delivered at the day long seminar comprise the first part of the manual. The seminar explored the rich ethnic resources of Baltimore and emphasized the need for incorporating ethnic studies into the curriculum. There were sessions on improving ethnic studies, oral history, ethnic genealogy, alternative teaching strategies, and preserving our cultural heritage. In addition to the presentations, a number of ethnic studies books, pamphlets, bibliographies, source lists, and photographic displays were on exhibit outside the main lecture hall. The second part of the manual contains a description of the one-day workshop program. There were several slide tape presentations: "Oral History in a Baltimore County Senior High School"; "A Glimpse of an Indian Marriage"; and "History of the Baltimore Finns." Several speeches gave historical sketches of various ethnic groups in Maryland including the French, Greeks, and Ukrainians. One presentation gave step-by-step directions for developing an ethnic directory. Another talked about how to conduct research in community history. (Author/RM)
