Fier, Harriet, Ed.; And Others
This user guide covers "Teaching in a Multicultural Society," one part of the 12-unit series "My America: Building a Democracy." The focus of the guide is to raise a generation of children who appreciate the value of a wide range of human experience including those distinctly different from their own. Goals of this program are to help children become familiar with the democratic process and active citizenship; recognize what it means to be an active citizen in a multicultural society; build skills in communications and cooperation; recognize how laws are made and how a single vote and voice matter; and experience how caring and commitment build community. Suggestions for using the videotape, "Teaching in a Multicultural Society," as well as before and after viewing activities are offered. Contains an 11-item bibliography. (JAG)
