The Ethnic Heritage Experience: A Handbook for Workshop Leaders.
Michigan Ethnic Heritage Studies Center, Detroit.
In 1974 and in 1975 the Michigan Southeast Regional Ethnic Heritage Studies Center conducted teacher training workshops as part of a federally funded ethnic studies project. This handbook describes the workshops. The purpose of the training program was to increase self-awareness, awareness of the multi-cultural community, and awareness of local and non-local resources related to ethnicity. Some of the resources utilized by the workshop participants were developed by the project (See SO 012 507-510). Other resources are available from commercial publishers. In the first session teachers are oriented to the different attitudes concerning ethnicity in American society through a simulation game, a slide tape series, and a group discussion. In session two the participants use ethnic maps, personal observations, and family histories to explore and compare interpretations of ethnicity. In the third session participants read about and discuss ethnic institutions in the community. Session four treats the why and how of community mapping. In the fifth and concluding session of the training program participants identify and prioritize specific needs their school, community, or institution can begin to meet. (Author/RM)
