City Univ. of New York, NY. Hunter Coll. Bilingual Education Applied Research Unit.; Columbia Univ., New York, NY. Inst. for Urban and Minority Education.
The central purpose of this manual is to bring the maintenance of cultural diversity into actual practice in the elementary school bilingual classroom. Techniques for implementing multicultural social studies curricula are presented through a series of modules for 15 workshops. These modules have been developed for teacher trainers. The techniques, conceptual tools, options, and suggested practices presented may be adapted to the needs of individual school systems for implementing curricula in English and/or Spanish. Workshop topics include: culture, race socialization, cultural differences, migration, bicultural students, parents as resources, the bilingual teacher as culture broker, language, learning style, the cross cultural comparative approach, the classroom as a learning environment, the arts, inquiry, and the learning and assessment system. Examples in this manual are taken from Hispanic cultures of the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States. The principles of the approach, however, are applicable to teaching students from any cultural background. (Author/GC)
