Ethnic Modification of the Curriculum.
This publication reports the proceedings of the Invitational Conference on Ethnic Modification of the Curriculum--later revised by the participants to be known as the Invitational Convention on Curriculum Modifications for Ethnic Emphases--convened in St. Louis, Missouri on November 20, 1969. The purpose of the invitational conference was to call together a small group of people to explore the question of what modifications of the curriculum can be made to better serve the educational needs of children and youth from various ethnic groups. Those invited included generalists from the curriculum field and those with experience in ethnic modifications. The conference included four sessions. The first session was an orientation to the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development and its relation to the purposes of the conference, followed by a general discussion to sharpen the issues and prepare for the later seminar. The second and third sessions included talks given by participants already actively involved in efforts to modify the curriculum to get at distinctive needs of various ethnic groups. The fourth session began with discussion of the differences in rationale in the approaches to curriculum modification. Participants with curriculum responsibility were then invited to present a short oral statement on the kind of questions that should be posed to persons called upon to exert leadership in this area.
