Ten Steps for Shared Roles in Multicultural Curriculum Development.
Illinois State Office of Education, Chicago. Urban and Ethnic Education Section.
These ten guidelines offer approaches for the development and implementation of multicultural materials. The approaches reflect the cooperative, shared roles of administrators, teachers, and parents in a school and community. Steps one and two involve identifying a core planning team and participants. Steps three and four identify strategies for developing structures of communication and for planning a communications brochure. Step five outlines a training program designed to increase the knowledge and skills of team members not previously involved in a school community program. The training design should address issues of specific interest to ethnic community members. The team recruiting process is outlined in step six. Step seven, developing the materials, includes assessing needs, stating the problem, identifying factors which impede or improve the situation, and creating and carrying out an action plan. Step eight investigates funding resources and step nine outlines definite steps in implementing the action plan. The final step is an evaluation of the project. These suggestions may be adapted for various projects involving the school community effort. (Author/KC)
