Asian American Curriculum Guide: Elementary and Secondary. Integrating Asian American Curriculum into the Classroom.
Kumagai, Gloria, Ed.; Shiraiwa, Sharon, Ed.
This curriculum guide consists of lessons and activities intended to help preschool, elementary, and secondary school students to gain a positive awareness and understanding of Asian Americans. The guide was developed by teachers in St. Paul, Minnesota during an inservice training program conducted as part of the project "Integrating Asian American Curriculum into the Classroom", funded by Title IV-C of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The lessons, which are based on different aspects of Asian History and culture, are structured in a conceptual format. Each lesson plan indicates the appropriate subject and grade level in which the lesson should be integrated, key concept(s), generalizations, behavioral objectives, teaching activities and procedures, evaluative procedures, and resources and materials. Supplementary materials provide additional information on specific aspects of the Asian American heritage and may be used to enrich many of the lessons in the guide. An annotated bibliography and a list of audio visual materials are appended. (MJL)
