Planning and Organizing for Multicultural Instruction.
This book addresses the development and implementation of a multicultural curriculum in light of growing diversity in America's schools. Directed toward students in general elementary education methods classes and staff development programs, the author offers pragmatic approaches for generating multicultural units across curricular lines. A variety of teaching strategies is presented, along with specific units. A thirty-two page chapter titled Generalizations and Teaching Strategies for Art includes positive statements about the value of art in helping students learn about their history, values and beliefs. Two model units are presented in depth: a study of folk art, and a series of maskmaking activities. Each unit includes generalizations, objectives, strategies and resources, covering primary, intermediate and middle school levels.
