Human Relations Ideabook.
McRae, Jean A.
Intended for local human relations committees and commissions, this ideabook may serve as a do-it-yourself kit, a springboard for human relations action, showing concrete action steps that can be taken. Ideas and suggestions given in the booklet may be used to provide a basis for organizing a human relations committee; awaken the educational community to the vast range of human relations concerns; provide material for thought, discussion, roleplay, and personal involvement; and provide curriculum material for high school and college classes and in-service training of teachers. Activities suggested in Part I include surveys, contests, meetings and small group discussions, special events and celebrations, games and exercises, displays, multiethnic and multicultural education, special youth programs, conferences and workshops, community involvement and political action, and projects with young children and foreign countries. Part II, Think Tank, is developed for teachers needing an aid to stimulate deep thinking as a prelude to action. Action stimulators are of two kinds: (1) Situations, designed for either oral or silent reading and discussion to provoke an educational exchange of opinion, and (2) Roleplays, based on what happens in daily life. Both activities are followed by groups of questions around a related issue. (BL)
