Ethnic Studies Sampler. The Best of the Title IX Project Materials.
Haley, Frances, Ed.
This sampler contains selected lessons, activities, and materials produced by ethnic studies projects funded under Title IX of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Items were selected for the sampler that would be useful to a variety of target audiences--elementary and secondary classroom teachers, university professors, teacher educators, and community groups. Actual pages from the materials are reproduced. Both materials with a multiethnic approach and those which focused on particular ethnic groups are included. Section I provides classroom activities and materials for use at the elementary, middle school, and secondary levels. Materials in this section are ready for use in classrooms. A few examples follow. "My Origins: Discovering and Recording Family History" helps students develop a sense of identity through looking at the origins of their ancestors and making a family tree. "The Native American Experience" focuses on teaching students in social studies courses about the American Indian. "The Asian Indians in America" is designed to teach students more about the culture, clothing, and experiences of Asian Indians. The second part of the sampler contains assessment and curriculum design materials. Assessment instruments for examining the school climate, teacher behavior, and classroom materials are included. In addition, several projects developed resources for use by educators in implementing effective multiethnic education programs. The third section contains teacher training materials. In this section, one reading offers a thorough explanation of how a teacher training institution can modify its curriculum to ensure that prospective teachers understand and can implement multicultural education. Another sampler resource in this section is an outline of a teacher training course from a handbook designed specifically for school personnel who would be working with Indo-Chinese students.
