Teaching Social Studies to Culturally Different Children.
Banks, James A., Ed.; Joyce, William W., Ed.
This book is designed to help classroom teachers attain the knowledge, perceptions, attitudes, and teaching strategies they need to make social studies relevant and exciting for Afro-American, Mexican-American, Puerto Rican-American, American Indian, and other children who come from a culture of poverty. Part One explores the basic problems and issues involved: racial prejudice; the social, cultural, and psychological factors of learning; teacher attitudes; and, the image of minority groups presented in teaching materials. Part Two presents promising classroom strategies for teachers of culturally different children, emphasizing the need to make social critics of these children. Part Three discusses and suggests ways of implementing some of the urgent changes in schools and curricula needed to make social studies and other subjects relevant and meaningful for poor and alientated children. Fifty readings are reproduced from journals, books, and unpublished manuscripts. The 10 chapters are introduced by the editors and provided with study questions, references, and resources.
