Many Peoples--Shared Dreams: A Curriculum Guide for Multi-Ethnic Studies.
Schillo, Genevieve; Fasenmyer, Mary Sarah
This is a curriculum guide for multiethnic studies. The introduction explains the importance of such studies as a part of values clarification even for young children. After the introduction there is a resource model which is divided into four sections. The first three sections (levels A-C) correspond with developmental stages in the learner. Level A fosters awareness; Level B fosters understanding and response; and Level C fosters recognition and commitment. The fourth section, Level D, deals with using the arts to explore ethnicity. Each level is laid out by goals, conceptual ideas, and suggested activities in which children learn about themselves and their own families and communities and then compare their similarities and differences with other groups and communities. Discussions on faculty development and planning and curriculum evaluation are included in this guide as well as a questionnaire for teachers to explore their own ethnic attitudes and experiences and the make-up and needs of their classroom. A list of ethnic organizations and a bibliography are also included. (CD)
