America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Filmstrip User's Guide for American Indian Women.
Saint Paul Public Schools, MN.
This document is one of five filmstrip users' guides that can be used to increase understanding of minority 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 "American Indian Women" 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 traditional and present day roles of American Indian women, as well as their current concerns. A discussion guide presents the four basic objectives of the program and suggests questions and discussion topics and reference materials. A filmstrip script contains narration for the 53-frame filmstrip. A teacher-developed 5-day lesson plan for seventh through ninth grade students is presented, using the five filmstrips in the series to explore the roles of minority group women. Appended is an essay on the historical background, stereotypes and myths, economics, and contemporary and future concerns of American Indian women. (FG)
