Detroit Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Social Studies.
This is a teacher's manual describing the activities of Detroit, Michigan's Ethnic Literacy Project and providing resource materials and classroom techniques for teaching ethnic heritage. The manual states that the Ethnic Literacy Project was intended to supplement the Detroit Objective Referenced Tests (DORT) Reading System. This system, the manual continues, was designed to develop comprehensive reading skills among students in all grades. Contained in the manual is a test for students to determine their knowledge about the history and culture of Detroit's many ethnic groups. The manual also contains lists of resource materials available from both general sources and from DORT. These materials include books, recordings and films. Various resource centers' addresses and sample suggested activities for extending ethnic literacy to basal readers are also included. A bibliography of books on ethnic subjects primarily for elementary school children, and a list of DORT Comprehension Objectives for grades 3 through 8 concludes the manual. (APM)
