The Cultural Exchange, A Cross-Cultural and Interdisciplinary Multicultural Education Curriculum for Grades 4-8. Probe Cards [and] Probe Booklets.
Nethery, Mary; And Others
These student probe cards for grades 4-8 provide a variety of values-oriented activities to help students explore, understand, and appreciate culturally diverse values. Activities are matched to one of seven objectives and are cross-referenced to the subject areas of social science, mathematics, fine arts, drama, physical education, language arts, and reading. The seven objectives are that the student will identify important elements in a given situation dealing with likenesses and differences among people; act upon chosen values in role playing, define and list different values that people may have in a given situation, define respect, identify prejudice, identify his own dislikes as opposed to prejudice, and demonstrate procedures for coping with values conflicts. Specific activities include devising a coat of arms, listing human needs, making a mosaic of pictures of American people, reading books about other cultures, replying to "Dear Terry" letters dealing with cultural problems, comparing African and American values, learning cultural dances, and responding to numerous situations involving values and decision making. A probe booklet provides a diagnostic assessment for students to be used with the probe cards. (KC)
