Adventure on a Blue Marble: Approaches to Teaching Intercultural Understanding.
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Atlanta, GA.
In this booklet, an attempt has been made to point out ways that a teacher may lead students to accept others for what they are and to value the rich and varied contributions of all cultures to the totality of human life. A complete program for intercultural education and understanding has not been given, but approaches are suggested for teacher use in developing programs and procedures that will suit the needs and abilities of the students. The areas of concern which have been covered are: 1) basic course objectives; 2) behavioral objectives according to Bloom's Taxonomy; 3) concept teaching using inductive and deductive methods; 4) instructional approaches-inquiry training, problem solving, attitude development, the unit approach, case study approach with role playing; 5) enrichment through interdisciplinary activities; and 6) evaluation techniques. A 16 page bibliography has included instructional materials, teacher background materials, guides to audio-visual materials, projects, information sources, newspapers and periodicals. (SBE)
