Innovations for Multilingual/Multicultural Teachers: A Supplement for Social Studies Curriculum.
Youssef, Anga A.; Nickson, Marie S.
Educational programs are needed to satisfy the multicultural needs of the children in schools today. Multicultural programs are a particular need in bilingual education programs. As one attempt to meet these needs, a supplementary social studies unit was developed for use in grade 4 as a tool to study the cultural roots of the children involved. The goal of the unit is to foster multicultural understanding among students and staff. It is a basic unit for the study of any country. The students do the work in English in the classroom and do the same work at home in their native language with parents or grandparents. Each section of the unit contains objectives, exercises, evaluation procedures, and grading suggestions. In addition to the introductory material on the need for multicultural education programs, and the units themselves, there are also suggestions for organizing the program, sources for materials, suggestions for various learning experiences, and guidelines for evaluation.
