This teaching guide, developed by the Los Angeles (California) Unified School District, focuses on the multicultural characteristics of American society. In the first section, background information is provided about American Indians, black, Asian, and Hispanic Americans, and white Americans (non-Hispanic) of various ethnic groups. Also examined are the language patterns of Asian, black and Hispanic cultures in the context of language problems encountered by students learning standard English. The second section describes criteria for developing multicultural learning centers, the instructional objectives and concepts for these learning centers, and instructional activities appropriate to each objective. Folklore, celebrations, customs, costume, arts, and environmental needs are among the instructional topics represented. This guide also includes Exhibit summary sheets for each learning center, an activity record sheet, a format for additional lesson plans, a glossary, and a bibliography. (JCD)
