Strand III: Social Conflicts. Multicultural Education. Grades 4-6.
Clair, Mary H.; And Others
This multicultural curriculum guide for grades four through six examines specific areas of social conflict (prejudice, discrimination, and segregation) and possible solutions based upon various problem solving and conflict management techniques. The guide consists of three curriculum units (pretests/posttests, preliminary activities, and social conflicts curriculum units) for each of three major objectives. The objectives are: (1) student recognition of forms of prejudice and discrimination; (2) student explanation of how forms of prejudice and discrimination can lead to segregation and social conflicts; and (3) student utilization of problem solving techniques. Separate directions for teacher and student are stated in the preliminary activities section and in the curriculum units. The curriculum units section describes sample teacher directed activities and individual student activities. Appendices include a glossary, bibliography, and etymological commentaries on the concepts of prejudice, discrimination, and segregation as well as strategies for dealing with confrontation. (JCD)
