Melenchuk, Allan S.; Newton, John L.
This document reports on a project whose goals were: (1) to define what is meant by cultural literacy and/or social and cultural literacy; (2) to provide examples of the skills, values, processes, knowledge, and cognitive abilities associated with cultural literacy; and (3) to suggest how cultural literacy may be fitted into the new core curriculum of Saskatchewan as a Common Essential Learning or in some other appropriate form. In order to achieve these goals the relevant literature in each of the following areas is reviewed: (1) cultural literacy; (2) the impact of culture on education; and (3) "what works." Substantial reference lists are included at the end of each of the sections. (DB)
