Guide to an Analysis of Curriculum Materials for Ethnic Heritage Programs.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Intergroup Relations.
This publication contains the analysis instrument developed by the California Ethnic Heritage Program to analyze ethnic studies curricula K-12 and discusses procedures for using the analysis form. The instrument is intended as a training aid to prepare teachers and other persons concerned with education to understand and internalize certain criteria relating to multiethnic and multicultural curricula. The instrument was field tested on a variety of printed and audiovisual materials. See ERIC document SO 009 094 for a list of the curricula reviewed. The analysis instrument is comprised of a Preliminary Screening Form and a Curriculum Analysis Questionnaire. The screening form is to be used in determining whether the curriculum material seems, on brief examination, to justify full analysis or whether the material should be rejected at the onset. The questionnaire is specific and detailed, and is intended to provide the basis for a recommendation concerning the use of an item in ethnic heritage instruction. The questionnaire requires a full review of the contents and format of the curriculum. (Author/RM)
