Cross-Cultural Perspectives in the Curriculum. Resources for Change.
Rosenfelt, Deborah S., Ed.
The manual is designed to help secondary teachers integrate materials and perspectives concerning ethnic groups in the United States and their heritage into traditional classes in English, speech and communication studies, humanities, economics, psychology, and sociology. The manual contains three types of resource materials for implementing cross-cultural perspectives into the curriculum: bibliographies, an essay on cultural diversity as a resource in the classroom, and sample syllabi showing how various faculty participants have expanded cross-cultural materials in their classrooms. Over 1,000 books and articles are presented in the bibliographies. Most of the items are annotated, dated between 1960 and 1981, and focus on Blacks, Latinos (especially Mexican Americans), Asian Americans, and American Indians. The essay is about communication issues between teachers and students in ethnically-diverse classrooms. It addresses issues of both race and gender, acknowledging the interrelatedness of racism and sexism. Finally, over 20 course descriptions containing additional reading lists and related materials are followed by a brief list of ethnic films. (LH)
