Intercultural Understanding: The Problem and a Process. Social Studies for the Elementary School. Proficiency Module #7.
Keach, Everett T., Jr.
This module is one in a series of teaching modules developed for a contemporary social studies curriculum. The purpose of this module is to develop an understanding of the sources of content to be used in an intercultural awareness curriculum and to reinforce teaching strategies learned in the other modules by applying them to the development of lessons in intercultural understanding. The terminal competency for this unit is: Given selected information on the "objects" and "dimension" of intercultural understanding, the reader will be able to derive a generalization from a set of cross cultural data and write a lesson plan incorporating an "object" and a "dimension" of intercultural understanding. The first section of the work discusses the development and applications of behavioral objectives in constructing an intercultural understanding curriculum. The second part contains case studies of two different cultures: The Hopi Indians of Northeastern Arizona; and A Japanese Family. Related modules are SO 005 444 through SO 005 450. (FDI)
