Human Intergroup Relations. Certification Requirement #69.
Northcentral Technical Coll., Wausau, WI.
This document provides materials for a course in human intergroup relations for preservice or inservice teachers preparing to work with a diverse, disadvantaged group of students. The information in the guide is drawn from the faculty and student support staff of Northcentral Technical College (NTC) in Wausau, Wisconsin, which serves a variety of returning women students, nontraditional learners, single parents, minority groups (especially American Indians and Southeast Asians), and hearing and visually impaired students. The manual is divided into six modules, each of which is a course component. Module A focuses on nontraditional learners and the teaching strategies necessary to ensure the success of the group. Module B describes hearing impaired and visually impaired adult students; support services and potential employment problems as well as strategies for modification or adaptation of curriculum to meet the needs of these students are emphasized. Module C describes the special needs groups served through NTC's GOAL Learning Center. The characteristics of special needs adults and the barriers that affect the teaching/learning environment are explored. Modules D and E focus on sexual harassment, sex equity, and alcohol- and drug-addicted persons. The legalities involved and the support services available are described. Module F identifies the characteristics of limited English proficient students, the support services available to them, and how the cultures of these students affect the teaching and learning environment. Each module lists course competencies, suggested resource personnel, objectives, activities, and provides detailed information sheets. (KC)
