The Ethnic Heritage Experience: A Study Guide for Workshop Participants.
Michigan Ethnic Heritage Studies Center, Detroit.
The Ethnic Heritage Experience, atraining program for educators and other persons who are interested in the development of new curriculum, interpersonal relationships, and increased cultural awareness that may be gained through Ethnic Studies, was developed by the Michigan Ethnic Heritage Studies Center under a Title IX, Ethnic Studies grant, and field tested for one year throughout Southeast Michigan. Participants for the pilot training program were drawn from public and private schools as well as from district administrative offices and universities and colleges. The training program is considered to be designed to increase self-awareness of the multicultural community, and awareness of local and nonlocal resources related to ethnicity. It also provides an introductory historical and social perspective from an academic standpoint through a series of readings and discussions on ethnic studies, and introduces activities relevant to the development of this discipline in the classroom. The basic scope of the training program is five workshop sessions. Although said to be designed to be carried out in five sessions, the activities and materials can be presented in either fewer compressed presentations, or additional sessions, according to the needs and convenience of those involved.
