An Ethnic Studies Guide and Resources Manual for the Carolinas: Final Report.
This final report describes a project to create an ethnic studies guide and resource manual for intermediate grades in the Carolinas. The report presents goals, activities of workshops, the calendar of activities and events, and describes development of the manual and resource unit. Goals included sensitizing educators to the needs of students from various ethnic backgrounds, compiling a list of resource materials for studying ethnic groups in the Carolinas, developing appreciation of the contributions of American Indians, and promoting cultural awareness, self-identity, and ethnic pride among the Indian people of the Carolinas. Although the project experienced difficulties in recruiting and maintaining participants from the Indian community, workshops were held to train facilitators and to develop the manual. The guide includes a cultural-historical summary of individual ethnic groups, annotated lists of resources for teachers and students, and sample learning activities. The resource unit contains a diorama, suitcase displays, artifacts, and audiovisual materials. A program evaluation concludes the report and indicates that while the goals were met, they could have been accomplished more efficiently through coordination and full-time employment for persons working on projects.
