America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Teacher-Training Manual.
Saint Paul Public Schools, MN.
"Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula" is a training and development program designed to help students understand the status, needs, and contributions of minority group women. It deals with American Indian, Asian American, black, and Hispanic women and points out relevant aspects of the history, culture, and contributions of these women. This manual provides a 3-day workshop model that can be used in developing and conducting workshops to increase teachers' understanding of and capability in teaching about minority group women. The model is intended as an introductory workshop for providing information on racism, sexism, and groups of minority women, as well as specific skills in the development of lesson plans for teaching on the subject. Included in the model are outlines of sequential components for the workshop. Each component is outlined with respect to objectives, required materials, suggested procedures (both content and activities), and time schedules. Within each component section are reference materials and worksheets for implementing activities. When appropriate, references that offer in-depth information on specific topics are listed. (JD)
