A Multiethnic Curriculum for Special Education Students.
Kamp, Susan H.; Chinn, Philip C.
The curriculum guide focuses on presenting ethnic heritage information to special education minority group students. Activities are listed in terms of background, objectives, materials, teaching time, and task guidelines for five units: identity, communication, life styles, immigration and migration, and prejudice and discrimination. Each unit also provides information on resource films and filmstrips. Activities are explained to adhere to the basic principles of multiethnic education, multicultural education, and ethnic studies. In developing the guide, the experiences and perspectives of five ethnic and cultural groups were drawn upon: American Indians, Asian Americans, Black/Afro Americans, Mexican Americans, and Puerto Ricans. A bibliography of approximately 200 books and periodicals concludes the document. (CL)
