Using Children's Literature To Address Pacific Rim Cultures. Scenario. Workshop presented at the International Conference on Social Studies Education (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, June 22-25, 1988).
Smith, Ben A.; And Others
In this age of world-mindedness, children should develop an appreciation and understanding of people of other cultures. This document contains some of the material presented in a workshop on teaching children about the cultures of the Pacific Rim through the use of folklore and folktales. A dialogue from Peter Parley's Adventures of James Jenkins is presented which illustrates some aspects of the culture of Pacific Coast Indian tribes. (Peter Parley is the pen name of Samuel Griswold Goodrich, one of the first U.S. writers of social studies materials intended for children.) A list of activities that could be used in conjunction with this dialogue is offered. The narrative which accompanied a slide presentation and some questions and answers about the dialogue are also included. The dialogue itself contains numerous pen and ink drawings. (JB)
