This teacher's guide on ethnic literacy was developed by the Ethnic Literacy Project for the Detroit, Michigan public schools. It consists of lessons, materials and activities intended to supplement reading activities under the DORT (Detroit Objective Referenced Tests) Reading System being implemented in those urban classrooms from kindergarten to eighth grade which are affected by a desegregation order. Included in the guide are instructional materials, lessons and activities on ethnicity, stereotypes, prejudice, immigration, the Holocaust, family life, folk tales, nutrition, and ethnic heritage, intended for inclusion at the teacher's discretion into Social Studies, English, Music Appreciation, and Art. An annotated bibliography of children's books using ethnic characters and a list of books, records, films and other resources related to the subject matter of the guide are appended. (MJL)
