Teaching Multicultural Children.
Hornburger, Jane M.; And Others
This handbook is designed to be of assistance in the selection of literature, trade books, and instructional materials to meet the scholastic needs of all children, including minority children. Contents include a description of a staff development session designed to assist teachers in preparing for multicultural instructional activities and listings of teacher resources (catalogs, bibliographies, and articles) and nonprint multicultural materials. The remainder of the volume provides an annotated bibliography of books for minority children; selections are grouped according to their relevance to Spanish-speaking, Black, Oriental, and Native-American students. Criteria for judging books involving black people and for children's books which deal fairly with all groups of people, some shortcuts to selecting books of quality, guidelines for analyzing books for racism and sexism, activities to stimulate pupil involvement with literature, and multicultural publications for teachers of reading are also discussed.
