Human Relations Approach to Alaskan Ethnic Studies.
Gaffney, Ann; Bensler, Connie
Developed in response to the need for ways to help build better understanding and appreciation of people of all ethnic groups, this guidebook presents author-tested lessons, activities, and teaching ideas suitable for use in elementary/secondary classes in which all or part of the students are Alaska Natives or in classes where none of the students are Alaska Natives. Some lessons emphasize the culture similarities, while others point up enrichment contributions of culture differences. All lessons emphasize better understanding via human relations concepts. While the lessons are interrelated, they are, for purposes of this guide, grouped as follows: (1) Breaking the Ice (Broken Squares, People Hunt, One-way--Two-way Communication, Classroom Geography); (2) Developing a Positive Self-Concept (3 lessons); (3) Investigating the Concept of Group (6 lessons); (4) Family and Marriage (3 lessons); (5) Art, Artifacts, and Activities (5 lessons); (6) Drama, Music, Poetry, and Prose (4 lessons); (7) Learning Games (6 lessons); (8) Geography (4 lessons). Each lesson provides the following designations: title, length of activity; human relations concept to be taught, attitudinal and behavioral objectives, teaching techniques and learning activities, and related activities. Appendixes provide audiovisual listings and community resource suggestions. (JC)
