Teacher Training Manual for Integrating Asian American Curriculum into the Classroom.
Kumagai, Gloria, Ed.; Shiraiwa, Sharon, Ed.
This manual provides a model for conducting a three day workshop for elementary and secondary school personnel in order to increase awareness of and skills in teaching about Asian and Pacific Americans. It was developed as part of the project "Integrating Asian American Curriculum into the Classroom", funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title IV-C. Addressed to personnel with prior experience in human relations and workshop development, the manual outlines the requirements for implementing the workshop, such as characteristics of workshop personnel, facilities, equipment and resources needed, the nature of participant involvement, process and methods, and guidelines for dealing with issues and participants. A detailed agenda is provided and daily activities are described by component in terms of objectives, materials needed, time schedule, procedures, and references. Activities are designed to provide information on the history, experiences and stereotyping of Asians in America, to increase awareness of relevant materials, and to develop skills in developing appropriate lesson plans for integration into various subjects in given grade levels. Provisions for workshop evaluation, reproductions of some reference materials, and an annotated bibliography are included. (MJL)
