America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Filmstrip User's Guide for Not About to Be Ignored.
Saint Paul Public Schools, MN.
This document is one of five filmstrip users' guides that can be used to increase understanding of minority women in the United States by supplying basic information on their histories, current concerns, myths, and misleading stereotypes. The guide was designed to be used with a filmstrip entitled "Not About to Be Ignored," to help teachers of secondary and postsecondary students to integrate ethnic group information about black women into existing curricula. A discussion guide presents four program objectives, discussion questions and topics, and references to sources of additional topics. Narration to the 64-frame filmstrip is supplied. Seven charts supplying employment, education, and income statistics for black women are included. A teacher-developed 5-day lesson plan for seventh through ninth grade students is presented, using the five filmstrips in the series to explore the roles of minority women. An essay is appended on the historical background, stereotypes and myths, economic situation, and present and future concerns of black women in the United States. (FG)
