Moving toward a Multi-Ethnic Perspective.
Wecksler, Margo Ann
Standard curricula at the primary level can be enlivened and enriched through storytelling and multi-ethnic literature, whereby teachers can introduce and reinforce a multicultural, unified world view. Through these materials, students in homogeneous monocultural environments can enjoy a broadened world view and new ideas to provide materials for their imaginations. Students in multicultural communities can contribute to the education of their peers by infusing the curriculum with their own experiences, thus creating a dynamic interchange. The teacher can assign "roots" projects and collect oral histories; the students can write to relatives and share their findings. Stories, assignments, projects, and activities can all reflect the particular character and culture of the class. (Thirty-four references are attached.) (KEH)
