An Analysis of Data Regarding the Field Testing of Five Modules Designed to Facilitate School Desegregation Processes.
Mercer, Walter A.
Five modules were designed for use with preservice teachers to prepare them to work in desegregated schools. The modules are (1) Racism in American Education, (2) The Roles of the State Colleges and Universities, Accrediting Agencies, and Public Schools in School Desegregation Processes, (3) Incorporating Multi-Ethnic Content, (4) Affirming, Accepting, and Appreciating Differences in the Classroom, and (5) Increasing Self-Awareness and Understanding of Minorities. The first three sections of this report detail a program validation attempt in which the potential for use of the modules was assessed. Pre and post instruction inventories were administered to students in undergraduate education courses. Findings indicated that the modules were effective teaching materials, that they were beneficial to students, and that there is a need for further study of some related issues. The fourth section of this report describes the five modules. The goals, objectives, strategies, and content of each module are outlined. Tables of data are included. Pre and post assessment inventories are appended. (Author/MK)
