Multicultural Education and Asian Americans.
Endo, Russell
Areas for reform in teaching Asian culture are discussed, and resources and bibliographies for existing curriculum are presented. The paper emphasizes that materials on Asian Americans need to be incorporated into school curricula to (a) counter existing inaccurate or derogatory prejudices or behaviors; (b) counter the inaccurate, incomplete, and stereotypical materials currently in school curricula; and (c) begin to remedy the general absence of materials and present accurate and balanced information on Asian-American history, culture, and contributions. The major portion of the paper provides a list of resource persons and organizations for Asian-American curriculum materials; resources for teaching, such as teaching guides, bibliographies, books, and audiovisuals; and a compilation of children's books in annotated form including grade level, author, and publisher.
