The document presents information on planning, teaching, and evaluating multicultural education programs. Although most of the examples are based on current multicultural projects in New England, the authors believe that the material presented can also be useful to classroom teachers in other regions. The document contains two components. The first component describes a conference at which teachers exchanged ideas on multicultural education, identified multicultural education resources, and developed ideas for relating multicultural concepts to social studies classroom activities. In addition, evaluation data regarding conference activities and objectives is included. The second component presents materials, conference papers, objectives, and resources to help teachers set up a multicultural education program. Information is presented on approaches to multicultural education, the role of multicultural education in the curriculum, multicultural curriculum dimensions for teacher and inservice education, regional multicultural resources (mostly in New England) and activity ideas for various grade levels including analyzing reading assignments and television programs, participating in field trips, and comparing values held by different ethnic groups.
