Smith, Gary R.
These evaluation activities are posttests on ethnicity, transnational linkages, and ethnocentric attitudes. The tests can be used to measure the content and skills that secondary students have acquired as a result of participating in the four units comprising the Ethnic Heritage Studies Curriculum. With a few minor modifications, the tests can also be used as an introduction to ethnicity without the four units. The tests are not in a sequenced, systematic evaluation format; rather, students and teachers are expected to choose activities that test what they consider to be the important dimensions of ethnicity. The test activities review the use and definition of stereotyping; ask students to analyze data and sort out important elements of ethnocentrism; provide formats for analyzing ethnocentric bias in school textbooks, greeting cards, and comic books; contain a checklist for analyzing ethnic attitudes in school; help students examine news items and classify types of transnational linkages; explore immigration policy and its effect on ethnic groups; and measure a student's change in attitudes.
