Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
This curriculum, the development of which was funded under Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, will aid teachers and school administrators in their efforts to explore with students the attitudes and skills essential to friendly and democratic relations between persons of different races, religious, national origins, and socioeconomic status and both sexes. The curriculum includes five components: (1) suggested ways of structuring effective learning activities for intergroup education which stress involvement, participation, and realism; (2) the "Intergroup Education Curriculum"; (a) a conceptual framework for teachers and students to operate within; (b) explanatory material which elaborates the meaning and significance of 12 key concepts; (c) a set of common objectives, drawn from the concepts, to provide a focus for each curriculum area; and (d) sections for each of eight curriculum areas--arts, early childhood education, health and physical education, industrial arts, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, (3) suggested ways of using the group life of the school as a source of class activities and a means of assuring the behavioral outcomes of the curriculum approaches; (4) suggested ways of involving the community as an important resource for intergroup education; and (5) supplemental information in the "Appendices" which can be used as an instructional resource for the classroom and inservice staff development programs.
