Zanger, Virginia Vogel, Comp.
This list of 19 films and videotape recordings was developed in response to teacher requests for practical methods and materials for teaching about cultural similarities and differences. An introductory section briefly discusses classroom teaching about cross-cultural issues and the potential uses of the films included in the list. Indexes list the cited items alphabetically by title, by grade level (primary; elementary; junior high; high school; for limited-English-speakers; and for inservice training), and by topic (promotion of understanding between bilingual and monolingual students; prejudice, conflict, stereotyping, group pressures, intercultural friendship; assimilation vs. ethnic pluralism, maintaining ethnic identity, cultural heritage; and comparing cultural similarities and differences). Appendixes contain a list of sources for the films and videos included and a list of 14 additional titles recommended by teachers. Addresses for Massachusetts Department of Education regional centers are also listed. (MSE)
