In Recognition of Culture: A Resource Guide for Adult Educators about Women of Color.
Hofmann, Sudie, Comp.
This guide was prepared to aid adult educators in teaching women of minority groups in adult basic education programs. It provides background information about the cultural roles and expectations of these women so that teachers can structure the classroom situation to serve their needs. The first section of the guide contains six essays on the background and cultural norms of the following groups: American Indian women, black women, Haitian women, Hispanic women, Indochinese women, and peasant (migrant) women. The second section of the guide lists local contacts, national contacts, and resources for various groups of women and types of education. Resources are suggested for these groups of women: American black, Asian American, displaced homemakers, Haitian, Hispanic, migrant, Native American, refugee, rural, and Southern; and for these educational concerns: English as a Second Language, literacy, nonformal education, sex equity, and adult education. The guide also contains the names of the project consultants who worked on the guide, funding information, and a discussion of the use of the term "women of color." (KC)
