A Five Dimensional Model for Teaching an Ethnic Content Course.
Curiel, Herman; Euwing, Ella
A model suitable for use in a required social work course or a high-interest elective social work course on ethnic groups, racism, or cross cultural studies uses a five dimensional approach. An elective course entitled "Cultural Diversity and the Helping Process" provides a case study. This course has been taught since 1981 and has occasionally been team taught by faculty members with expertise on a particular ethnic group. The course is divided into five 3-week units. Each unit builds on the content of the previous unit. Unit 1 is a review of basic sociology concepts. Units 2-5 address content specific to four major ethnic groups: American Indians, Blacks, Hispanics, and Asian Americans. Course content is derived from three texts and supplementary articles. The format is lecture and seminar, with audiovisual aids and student presentations. The course has proven highly successful and popular. An appendix contains a course syllabus including description, purpose, educational outcomes, content, texts, teaching methods, and evaluation methods. (LP)
