Bean Sprouts: A Television Series about Chinese-American Children.
Chinese for Affirmative Action, San Francisco, CA. Chinese Media Committee.; Association of Chinese Teachers, San Francisco, CA.
This teaching guide accompanies a series of five half-hour television programs for children 7 through 12 years of age that depict Chinese American children in a variety of situations that foster a sense of group and individual identity. The emphasis of the series is on affective learning. The following issues are dealt with: (1) the ramifications of stereotypic thinking, of ethnic and racial prejudice, and of sexism; (2) the negative results of parental pressures on a child to excel; (3) the conflict between the child's need to explore beyond the family unit and the parents' natural protectiveness; (4) the embarrassment of feeling "different"; (5) apprehension about people from a different culture; and (6) how being open about thoughts and feelings can help others understand us. The following information is provided for each of the programs: (1) a synopsis; (2) the learning goals for the program; (3) questions for class discussion; (4) a suggestion for role-playing that can carry the discussion to a deeper level of learning; and (5) background information. Suggestions for teaching Chinese American children and a description of a method of role-playing are included. (FMW)
