Cultural Pluralism and the Arts. A Multicultural Perspective for Teacher Trainers in Art and Music.
Rodriguez, Fred; Sherman, Ann
Designed for teacher trainers and teachers interested in presenting a multicultural perspective in elementary and secondary art and music education, the training manual focuses on the art and music of three cultural groups: Black Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans. The manual begins with an introduction to the concept of multicultural education and the rationale for the teaching approach, and includes statements of the art and music educators' need for multicultural education. The manual is then divided into two major sections, art and music. Each section presents a series of concepts taken from the three cultural groups from both traditional and contemporary approaches. For each concept, of which 12 are for art and 30 for music, the manual includes background and interpretive information and detailed classroom activities. For each activity, the manual notes the title, time frame, grade level, materials required, objectives, procedures, discussion questions, evaluation procedures, and related activities. Some activities are illustrated. Each major section also contains a review of multicultural content in selected textbooks, narrative and charted evaluations of the texts, and a bibliography of relevant resources and materials by cultural group.
