Teaching Ethnic Psychology to Undergraduates: Course Development, Delivery, and Evaluation.
Romero, Dan; And Others
This paper discusses the development, delivery, and evaluation of university undergraduate courses in ethnic psychology, which is defined as research and literature about four major racial/ethnic minority groups, Asian American/Pacific Islanders, Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans. Following a brief history of the role of professional psychology in addressing ethnic issues, especially the actions of the American Psychological Association (APA), research on the current status of ethnic psychology courses nationwide, is presented. An undergraduate ethnic psychology course offered in the fall of 1982 is described including format, course requirements and grade assignments (a list of presenters is included in the appendix). Issues in course delivery are addressed (e.g., student reactions, course content, assessment and grading), and characteristics of students enrolled in the course are described. Students' evaluations of the course and instructors' evaluations of students are also discussed. Six detailed recommendations dealing with organizational, departmental, and faculty and student roles in undergraduate ethnic psychology courses complete the paper. (MCF)
