America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Elementary Curriculum Guide.
Saint Paul Public Schools, MN.
This curriculum guide, designed by elementary school teachers from the Minnesota school districts of Roseville and St. Paul, helps students to understand the status, needs, and contributions of minority group women: American Indian; Asian American; black; and Hispanic. The guide is intended for use by elementary grade teachers to integrate relevant aspects of the history, culture, and contributions of minority group women into existing classroom curricula. Lessons in this curriculum guide are divided according to key concepts: similarities and differences between people, stereotyping, and discrimination. Each lesson plan is structured to emphasize one or more of the key concepts. Subject area, grade level, and names of teachers who developed the lessons are listed. The minority female group taught about in the lesson is indicated, and major ideas and organizational themes are provided. A summary of each lesson provides teachers with a statement of content emphasis. Specific behavioral objectives are listed along with teaching procedures and activities designed to help students achieve the objectives. This section on teaching procedures and activities provides discussion questions, worksheets, and ideas. To evaluate the effectiveness of these activities, wrap-up activities are provided. A listing of books, articles, and other materials needed for each lesson is included in the resource section following each lesson plan. (JD)
