47 p. 

The materials are designed to help teachers formulate, plan, and work for multiculturalism in schools. The first part of the unit contains a guide to help elementary and secondary teachers engage in multicultural education and eliminate racism and sexism in the schools. It discusses how teachers can make a difference and helps them assess their own goals, awareness, knowledge, and skills which can contribute to multicultural education. The second part of the unit, "Understanding Multicultural Equality," provides examples of uniculturalism in the schools. This implies the imposition of the values of white male, middle class dominated society. Part three, "Schools and Educators Who Rate," outlines the roles of key groups responsible for developing multicultural schools and furnishes a checklist for rating existing skills and understandings. The Action Guide in part 4 lists strategies which individuals or groups can use to move beyond uniculturalism. The booklet concludes with a bibliography of books and journal articles dealing with sexism and racism. Each of the five parts may be used individually or as an entire unit. The materials compiled in this document are available in kit form from the National Education Association. The kit contains two posters for the classroom that are not contained in the microfiche version. (Author/RM)
