Education for Ethnic and Racial Diversity.
Cobbs, Price M.; Winokur, Diane K.
The content of this work is based upon the proceedings and outcomes of the Workshop on Multicultural Education held in the State of Washington. This workshop was designed to present critical substantive material, examine the decision making process of the schools, and identify and teach skills and techniques for inservice staff training. The advantages of cultural diversity and the crucial role of educators in imparting the values and diversity implied by cultural pluralism were stressed throughout the workshop. Administrative decisions, educational planning, and accountability issues were addressed in the context of designing multicultural education programs. The primary goal of inservice programs was identified as increased personal awareness and sensitivity. Cultural influences on teaching and learning styles were discussed in terms of their effect on reaching this goal. An annotated bibliography of works on multicultural education as well as samples of biocognitive measurement instruments, are included. (Author/GC)
