Teacher's Handbook for Teaching and Working with Oriental Students and Their Parents.
Yao, Esther Lee, Ed.
This handbook contains information about Asia and Asian Americans that is relevant to elementary and secondary school teachers who deal with this group. The first chapter focuses on the historical background and cultural characteristics of China, Japan, India, Korea, the Philippines, and Southeast Asia. The second chapter addresses the history of Asian migration to the United States and Asian American assimilation, as well as basic concepts in the education of young children. In the third and fourth chapters, cognitive, affective and psychomotor aspects of learning, and the sociopsychological development of Asian American students are discussed. The fifth and sixth chapters provide specific guidelines to teachers for working with Asian American children and for helping to increase Asian parent participation in their children's formal schooling and in school activities. Some suggestions as to the development of an ethnic studies curriculum focused on Oriental culture are provided in the seventh chapter. Finally, Chapter Eight consists of a lengthy questionnaire for self evaluation of the teacher's attitudes toward ethnic studies and minority students. Appended to the handbook are demographic data on Asian Americans, questionnaires to measure child, parent and teacher attitudes, and a bibliography. (GC)
