Teaching Strategies for Ethnic Studies.
Banks, James A.
This book is designed to help contemporary and future teachers attain the content, strategies, concepts, and resources needed to teach comparative ethnic studies and to integrate ethnic content into the regular curriculum. The book is divided into two major parts. Part one presents a rationale for teaching comparative ethnic studies, goals, key concepts for ethnic studies programs, and practical ways to organize lessons and units. Part two consists of chapters on the major American ethnic groups. Each chapter contains a chronology of key events, a historical overview of the group discussed, illustrative key concepts and teaching strategies, an annotated bibliography for teachers, and an annotated bibliography for elementary and secondary school students. The final chapter illustrates how a teacher can use the previous information to develop units focusing on two or more ethnic groups. The appendices include a chronology of key events in the history of ethnic groups, a list of films and filmstrips, a selected list of ethnic periodicals, and criteria for evaluating textbooks and other learning materials.
