Lecture-Demonstration: Using Multi-Ethnic Cultural Materials to Prepare University Students to Teach in the Inner-City.
Darton, Andrew W., Jr.; Linville, Malcolm E.
This course is designed to give university students an introduction to the varying social and cultural backgrounds of students in inner city communities. Materials in the areas of literature, music, and history are assigned and presented to these future teachers. Class presentations are used to help students to broaden their perspectives and sensitivities with regard to minority groups. In order to improve verbal communication between these students, who are usually from middle class, standard English speaking backgrounds and ghetto residents who may speak nonstandard English, phonograph records and tapes of black English are played in the classroom. Dramatizations and readings from ethnic history are used to help students to understand the struggle of minority groups for basic human rights. It is hoped that the increased understanding fostered by this course will result in improvements in urban education. (GC)
