America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Filmstrip User's Guide for Asian American 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 "Asian American 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 the cultural traditions and values, stereotypes, and current concerns of Asian American women. A discussion guide presents four objectives, suggested questions and topics for discussion, and references to sources of additional information. Narration for the 70-frame filmstrip is provided. 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 in the United States. An essay is appended on the historical background, stereotypes and myths, economics, and present and future concerns of Asian American women. (FG)
