Multi-Ethnic Approaches to Teaching.
Earhart, Connie
This document is a compilation of activities for a multiethnic approach to teaching. It begins with points to consider when creating a multiethnic atmosphere in the classroom. Next are suggestions for the learning environment. One of the suggestions is to display items as a source of stimulation for conversation and writing, such as photo-of-the-week, quote-of-the-week, or a bulletin board of poems by American poets of various ethnic backgrounds. Examples of these are included. A list of simulations and games and their sources is then presented. Five activities are then described along with the purpose for the activity and teaching hints. For example, the purpose of one of the activities is to help the student appreciate music as a form of communication which reflects people's feelings and generates concerns of the times. The activity involves listening to various types of music on a particular theme and analyzing the content. Lists of sources of free and inexpensive materials, journals, and newspapers that can be obtained, and do's and don'ts for teachers in multicultural settings are then listed. An article on identifying racism in school books completes this document. (RC)
