A Guide to Developing Multicultural, Nonsexist Education Across the Curriculum.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
This guide is designed to help administrators and teachers develop curriculum and improve instruction in multicultural, nonsexist education in response to a 1985 mandate from the Iowa State Assembly requiring the coordination of curriculum across subject matter lines at all levels of education. Multicultural, nonsexist education (MCNSE) is a process through which a body of knowledge and a set of attitudes and skills are infused throughout the curriculum. The purpose of this guide is to infuse MCNSE goals, objectives, strategies, and evaluation across the K-12 curriculum. The following topics are included: (1) rationale; (2) Iowa law and school standards; (3) teacher strategies and classroom examples for incorporating student goals and objectives into each vertical strand of the curriculum; and (4) evaluation. The following content areas are discussed: (1) Arts; (2) Foreign Language; (3) Health and Physical Education; (4) Language Arts; (5) Mathematics; (6) Science; (7) Social Studies; and (8) Vocational Education. A glossary, an evaluation checklist, a 107-item annotated bibliography of resources on theory and classroom applications, and a list of resource organizations are appended. (FMW)
