Multicultural, Nonsexist Teaching Strategies: Social Studies (K-6).
Weber, Warren K., Comp.
Designed to help Iowa teachers implement the multicultural, nonsexist education mandated by state law, this resource book contains over 100 social studies activities for use in primary, intermediate, and junior high level classes. Exercises for each grade level focus on self, family, neighborhood, community, state, and nation. Primary grade group and individual activities involve students in making life size dolls of themselves, examining likenesses and differences, exploring adult roles and professional options, analyzing stereotypes, and realizing cultural differences. Intermediate grade students look at the lives of pioneer women, American Indians, community values, ethnic groups, and stereotypes. Junior high school students study Iowa minorities, prejudice, famous American women, the Equal Rights Amendment, and the concept of the melting pot. For each activity, skill area, time allotment, objectives, materials, description, and evaluation methods are provided. This document is one of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (LP)
