A survey of current research on disadvantaged students (defined as children of unassimilated lowest class Negroes, Puerto Ricans, American Indians, Mexican Americans, and Caucasians) provides classroom teachers with concise and up-to-date summaries of educational research findings and their implications for teaching. Discussions presented cover who the disadvantaged are, implications of their behavior in school, causes of disadvantagement, and factors of special significance in teaching the disadvantaged (such as intelligence and testing, language, girl-oriented schools, and time and fantasy orientations). Also presented are suggested procedures and methods designed to aid the disadvantaged child at various levels, I.E., ages six to seven, and eight to eleven, and junior high and high school. Specific emphasis is placed on teacher attitudes and approaches to teaching the disadvantaged. (Dk)

Teacher aides at work by Gertrude Noar( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recruitment, qualifications, training, and duties of teacher aides are described. Major activities are those that free the teacher from nonteaching duties (clerical, library, lunchroom supervision, and home visits). However, the use of teacher aides drawn from the same socioeconomic levels as the parents of disadvantaged pupils could provide a bridge to such pupils only if aides are assigned to classroom activities. Aides are recruited through newspaper or community center announcements or by word of mouth. Qualifications vary with the type of community, socioeconomic level of students, and duties of aides. Selection may be based on personality traits, acceptability as a "language model," interview or neighborhood residence, aides include center-city unemployed, middle-class mothers, and college students. Wages are usually $1.50 an hour ($1.25 to $2.50). discrepancies between conditions of employment for aides and regular teachers are a source of dissatisfaction to some aides, but the work often provides ego support. Use of aides has raised questions about (1) aides as change agents, (2) placement and responsibility of aides, (3) whether many low-paid aides are being hired when a smaller number of additional higher-paid professionals would be better, (4) whether minority group aides are being employed in place of minority group regular teachers, thus supporting inferiority stereotypes.

Prejudice and discrimination by Gertrude Noar( Book )

5 editions published between 1964 and 1967 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The school was confronted with the necessity of teaching about prejudice and discrimination as facts of life, as conditions which prevent the full development of every person, as problems that should be solved, if democracy was to function. One of the approaches to a unit that studied prejudice and discrimination consisted of the discussion of a specific incident of scapegoating or discrimination which had occurred in the school or the community. A magazine article or a newspaper story could also be used. The basic objective of curriculum in intergroup relation was development of the kind of person who could live effectively in a democratic society. The basic principles and values of the curriculum included recognition and acceptance of the worth and integrity of every human being. Also all persons in a democracy had the right to share in policy-making, as well as having the right to become something of his own choice. The content of curriculum included the description of the nature of prejudice. It was an unfounded, negative, overgeneralized judgment, formed without benefit of facts and usually accompanied by a feeling tone. Effect of discrimination was the deprivation of an individual of the human and civil rights which were granted to him by the federal constitution and the bill of rights. Corrective measures included preservice and inservice teacher education and many elementary and secondary school courses of the values and facts about predudice and discrimination. The mass media should devote time and space to various aspects of intergroup relations, and public meetings should be held frequently to discuss problems. Intergroup activities and the activities of public and private agencies were also important
Civil rights and civil liberties, a resource unit for teachers by Gertrude Noar( Book )

in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A resource unit for teachers is presented. It aims at explaining the rights and liberties of a citizen, developing the principles and concepts of democracy, and developing the ability to think critically about questions of individual rights and responsibilities. Suggested methods for teaching the unit involved--the use of case studies, mass media of communication, and films, field trips to a court session, and problem-solving and sociodrama. The content included the historical events and documents which preceded the writing of the federal constitution, an analysis of the principles written into it to promote the welfare and happiness of the people, and a description and interpretation of the amendments which constitute the bill of rights. Some of the learning activities suggested were word study, reading, discussion, research on historical documents, construction of time-lines, biographical studies, trips to governmental institutions, the use of consultants, letter writing, films, art work, music, and recordings

The Teacher and Integration. Revised Edition by Gertrude Noar( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended for both beginning and experienced teachers who face many difficult challenges in today's desegregated school. Teachers must come to feel and recognize the many contingencies of the desegregated classroom if it is to be a place for learning. Because social class segregates children as often as does race, the major question posed in this book is how teachers can integrate into one classroom children of different races and socioeconomic backgrounds. The how-to-do-it sections of this book are intended to help prospective teachers apply new information, sensitivity, and insight to specific day-by-day situations. The situations range widely from first-day welcome to absenteeism. Issues directly relating to these situations also are discussed: from the nature and applicability of discipline to the appropriateness of curriculum. In addition to day-to-day expertise, teachers need a global perspective on integration if the nature of pluralism is to be understood and if integration is to work in the classroom. In a sense the international racism that obstructs world peace and the problems that face teachers in pluralistic classrooms are based on the same issues. For this reason the appendixes include one United Nations document, two unesco articles, and a brief excerpt from Pearl S. Buck's autobiography. The bibliography lists many materials and resource organizations teachers can use to sharpen their awareness. (Author/JM)
