Freedman, Philip I.
Social Studies, v73 n2 p57-60 Mar-Apr 1982
Provides examples of a "counter-stereotype" approach for use in secondary U.S. history courses to dissipate ethnic stereotypical thinking among students. The essential elements of this approach are to cite prominent personages of atypical accomplishment and to stress the lesser known attributes of the masses of a particular culture. (RM)
