Minority Groups in America, English: 5112.47.
Gray, Desmond P.; And Others
This course outline proposes that an examination of the heritage and contributions of ethnic and minority groups will help students better understand American culture. It also suggests that investigations into historical immigrations, geographic settlements, literature, fine arts, and music will reduce prejudice and discrimination. The subject matter of the course includes study of definitions of minority and ethnic groups, minority stereotypes, the historical backgrounds and characteristics of American minority groups, minority group contributions to American culture, characteristics separating minorities from dominant social majorities, contemporary status of minority and ethnic groups, and the progress of and restraints upon minorities today. Numerous suggested teaching strategies to fulfill the course objectives are proposed, and a bibliography of student and teacher resources is included. (Author/DI)
