An Inservice Project in Multi-Cultural Studies for Professional Staff 1973-1976. A Regional Project.
Pacific Coll., Fresno, CA.
Seven California school districts, all of them with substantial numbers of minority students, created a regional inservice program for teachers intended to make their understanding of and instruction of minority children more appropriate. Superintendents, students, and members of the communities were involved in the plans. Teachers received credit for taking local college courses on racial and ethnic minorities. Superintendents provided information on minorities in each school; closed circuit TV programs on minorities were shown; and districts held seminars with parents and students to reveal ethnic feelings. Teachers were also given credit for attending college courses on teaching strategies for minority children. Each district, and especially target schools, used these and other approaches to improve staff awareness and also to draw parents and others from the community into the program. (Information on the school districts, and outlines of the goals, the planning process, and general program information are presented. Outlines and bibliographies for the college courses are included in the appendix.) (CD)
