What You Say After Hello: Pre-Service Orientation for Native Programs.
Tafoya, Terry
Four pre-service orientation exercises utilize both cognitive and affective approaches to foster positive attitudes and self-awareness among staff members working with Alaska Native students. While designed specifically for the Nome (Alaska) Public School Title VII program, the terminology could be readjusted easily to meet the needs of many American Indian, Asian American, Mexican American, or other bilingual and/or ethnic group programs. Plans for each activity detail objectives, time required, appropriate setting and participants, materials needed, and procedures. Exercise I creates interaction between Natives and non-Natives on a non-threatening level by requiring identification of Native language words for food. Exercise II develops awareness of hidden stereotypes by taking participants on a fantasy bus ride. Exercise III focuses on awareness of overt stereotypes through listing and discussing stereotypes of two participant groups. Exercise IV allows English-speaking participants to experience Native language problems in a bilingual setting. (NEC)
