Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Development Teacher's Guide.
Tipple, Bruce E.; Whitehead, Pamela
The teacher's guide describes learning activities and teaching methods for the Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project for secondary schools. It is divided into eight sections. Section I lists knowledge generalizations and important concepts for each section. The remaining seven sections are entitled ethnicity, migration, acculturation, ethnic enclaves, family, prejudice and discrimination, and power. Topics include values and behavior, celebrations and ceremonies, various ethnic groups, immigration and emigration, geography, occupations, family trees, United States history, and leadership. Sample activities offer suggestions for researching, making collages, reading, viewing films and filmstrips, analyzing charts and graphs, hypothesizing, role playing, simulation gaming, interviewing, classifying, and taking surveys. Each section offers from nine to 15 activities designed to develop social studies skills, especially those related to multicultural education. Each activity includes an introduction, three to five educational objectives, a detailed list of needed materials, the estimated teaching time (usually from 1 to 3 class periods), and detailed guidelines for teaching methods and follow-up activities. Student worksheets with answer sheets when applicable are included in each section. Other components of the project are presented in SO 012 414-423. (CK)
