Educator's Guide to "Straight Talk about America".
National Conference of Christians and Jews, New York, NY.
This guide is designed to help kindergarten through grade 12 students begin a life-long dialogue about intergroup relations. It helps them to examine their attitudes about diversity and intergroup relations, assists them in identifying problems in intergroup relations by using their own experiences and the results of The National Conference Poll on Intergroup Relations, and enables them to develop strategies for improving intergroup relations and building respect for diversity at school and in their communities. The guide first provides a general introduction for educators about what the dialogue consists of followed by sections that address such areas as cultural diversity and intergroup relations, establishing a safe space for dialogue, developing common concepts and vocabulary for talking about intergroup relations, and the latest data on intergroup relations in America. The bulk of the guide contains student activities divided by grade level and handout material. Contains a 36-item bibliography and a resource list. (GLR)
