Teaching Ethnic Studies: Concepts and Strategies. 43rd Yearbook.
Banks, James A., Ed.
Twelve authors present new conceptual frameworks for studying about ethnic groups, and for analyzing American society, and describe promising strategies and materials in this 43rd yearbook. The book is arranged into three major parts. In Part One, the authors provide perceptive analyses of institutional racism, social justice and power relationships in America, and also suggest ways in which the teacher can deal with both individual and institutional racism. In addition, one author describes how ethnic content can be used to spearhead instructional reform. The next five chapters in Part Two focus on the historical and sociological problems of ethnic minority groups, and describe ways in which the teacher can incorporate their experiences into the social studies curriculum. Authors are various members of ethnic groups and speak from their perspective. The final part of this book explores the problems of two groups victimized by stereotypes and cultural assaults -- white ethnics and women. Strategy exercises are appended to several chapters.
