Teaching Culturally Diverse Students in Vocational Education.
Lee, Jasper S., Ed.; Mannebach, Alfred J.
This handbook is intended to provide vocational educators with methods for teaching culturally diverse students. The first two sections offer information on cultural diversity in vocational education and the concept of multicultural education and on understanding the culturally diverse. Four principles of cultural diversity are described, and learning about cultural diversity in the local community is discussed. The third section focuses on teaching the culturally diverse. The learning process is summarized, and then preplanning procedures are outlined. Discussion of instructional procedures first considers teaching methods--presentation, discussion, job instruction, self teaching, and combinations--and then surveys teaching techniques or procedures used with a method of teaching. These are described: role playing, demonstrations, resource persons, field trips, lectures, supervised study, problem solving, and tests and inventories. Other topics addressed include using realia; infusing concepts and activities to preserve, extend, and enrich cultural diversity; and parent involvement. The final section summarizes in a table format possible problems and preventive/correctional educational practices. The left hand column describes the problem/observation, while the right hand column contains helpful practices. A list of sources of materials is appended. (YLB)
