America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Filmstrip User's Guide for America's Women of Color.
Saint Paul Public Schools, MN.
This document is one of five filmstrip user's guides that can be used to increase understanding of minority group women in the United States by supplying basic information on their histories, current concerns, myths, and misleading stereotypes. The guide was designed to be used with a filmstrip entitled "America's Women of Color: Past, Present, and Future" and to help teachers of secondary and postsecondary students to integrate ethnic group information into existing curricula. The focus of the guide and filmstrip is on the status of American Indian, Asian American, black, and Hispanic women. Among the topics addressed are employment, historical figures, stereotypes, and issues of concern to both minority and nonminority group women. The guide consists of: (1) a discussion guide, which defines four objectives and provides discussion questions and remarks; (2) a filmstrip script and supplementary information for the 70 frames in the filmstrip; (3) a teacher-developed 5-day lesson plan for seventh through ninth grade students, focusing on similarities and differences among roles of minority group women; and (4) a list of suggested supplementary student activities. Appended are five essays giving background information on the history, stereotypes and myths, economics, and current and future concerns of each of the four minority groups as well as of white women.
