Asian American Curriculum Guide.
Saint Paul Public Schools, Minn.
This comprehensive Asian American curriculum and resource guide for elementary school teachers consists of lessons developed as part of an in-service teacher education workshop. The guide is divided into three topic areas: stereotyping; similarities; and differences. The format for lessons in all sections contains a title, key concepts, generalizations, behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, and resources and materials. The lessons are designed to be used for different subjects including social studies, art, math, music, reading, language arts, and home economics. Specific materials and worksheets follow each lesson. These materials include instructions for activities such as Chinese character writing, origami, and tangrams. Additional activity sheets and supplementary materials are included in a guide to integrating Asian American lessons into the classroom. A short evaluation form for evaluating Asian American classroom materials and a brief annotated bibliography are included. (Author/PMR)
