Providing K-12 Multi-Cultural Curricular Experiences. Revised Edition.
Mack, Louise; Flowers, Hazel
This curriculum guide seeks to provide teachers with a brief account of four minority groups in the United States: Afro-Americans, American Indians, Mexican-Americans, and Puerto Ricans. Because Afro-Americans consitute the largest minority group, they are dealt with more extensively than the other three groups. This curriculum guide is designed to be used by teachers in all subject areas in grades Kindergarten through 12, as they incorporate minority history and culture into the total curriculum. Teachers should not be limited by the information and sources in this publication; due to space limitations, the guide is a highlighting of events rather than a comprehensive history. There are three ways to locate information; by subject matter, by date, and by means of the alphabetical index. To speed the location of material pertaining to Ohioans and Ohio history, a color screen has been applied to this material. This curriculum guide lends itself to a variety of teaching methods. Two of these are: (1) "Present-to-past." This method capitalizes on students' awareness of current events. What is happening today is studied and discussed in relation to former events. (2) Related Events. Since no event occurs in a vacuum, teachers of various subjects can relate their discussion of inventions, scientific discoveries, artistic triumphs, great newspaper editors, to other happenings of the time period being discussed.
