Nassau County Educational Resources Center Catalog of Professional Materials. Multi-Ethnic Materials Collection.
Nassau County Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Westbury, NY.
The Nassau Educational Resource Center is a multimedia, multi-area curriculum and instructional materials center, with an educational communications training component. The catalog contains listings of the professional resources made available at the Center in the area of multi-ethnic studies by the Racial Ethnic Action Project (REAP). REAP, funded under Title III, Elementary Secondary Education Act, was initiated in the Freeport Public Schools in September 1969. Jointly sponsored by the Freeport Public Schools and the Board of Cooperative Educational Services, its goal was to alleviate the tensions and conflicts among various ethnic groups by developing a curriculum through which students, teachers, and community would gain an understanding of cultural differences. REAP's main goal was to gather a collection of media (film, film strips, games, and print materials) that provided data about the many ethnic groups in their diverse forms of race, religion, or national origin found in the United States; also, educational methods and concepts that deal with developing and implementing affective education in the classroom. REAP staff writers used these materials in the development of its multi-ethnic human relations units of instruction. (Author/JM)
