Teaching Children About Cultural Differences: Process, Material, Activity, and Behavior.
Lindberg, Dormalee; Swick, Kevin
This paper contains the argument that the major focus of social learning must be on the development of people who value a variety of cultural and subcultural life styles. Four major concerns confront the classroom teacher or curriculum developer: (1) valuing cultural diversity in the classroom, (2) organizing curriculum processes to encourage the development of diverse talents, (3) creating materials and activities for actualizing those diverse cultural talents, and (4) initiating teacher-adult behavior patterns in the classroom that model the significance of accepting and appreciating cultural diversity for children. Several activities are described which foster appreciation of differences. (DP)
