Kaleidoscope: A Directory of Resource Materials for Ethnic Education, K-12.
Dearmin, Evalyn M., Comp.
As the "melting pot" theory of American Society has become discounted, educators have made a more resolute effort to relieve the distress of the culturally different student by identifying difference as a positive quality and by creating among all students an awareness of the incredibly rich and various inheritance America has garnered from its diverse ethnic groups. This directory was prepared in response to frequent requests from teachers for information about suitable materials for ethnic education. The directory is organized according to six instructional categories: social studies/history, reading, bilingual/dialect education, music, art, and mathematics. Each category contains subsections for curriculum guides, publications, and audiovisual materials concerning black, Hispanic, Native American, and Oriental ethnic groups. A separate section has been compiled for Basques. A majority of the annotations have been taken from publishers' catalogs, book introductions, bibliographies, state departments of education guides and publications, and innumerable letters from concerned and interested educators. Approximate grade level is indicated. Audiovisual materials are listed at the end of each section and are identified in parentheses. Addresses are supplied for companies or private presses which might be difficult to locate otherwise. (Author/JM)
