This multicultural guide contains classroom activities that have been prepared for use in the primary grades. The guide is divided into five sections: (1) multicultural, (2) phonology, (3) syntax, (4) comprehension, and (5) resources. The multicultural unit discusses twenty activities from Asian countries, some involving arts and crafts and some involving classroom discussion. The phonology unit is designed to help Asian American students improve their oral/aural discrimination skills in English. Each of the 30 lesson units represents a pronunciation problem for three or more of the five Asian language groups. The syntax unit is designed to give Asian American students a better understanding of English sentence structure as well as knowledge of the American culture. The comprehension unit is developed to assist students who are learning English as a second language to express themselves orally in English. The resources unit contains three bibliographies: (1) "Asian American Bibliography: Adult Reading," (2) "Asian American Multi-Media Materials, K-3," and (3) "Bibliography of Asian American Children's Books, K-3."
