Resource for Teachers Reducing Adolescent Prejudice, A Handbook For teachers and teachers-in-training, the book makes a much needed contribution in the area of prejudice reduction. It gives units of instruction for each of the seven commonly taught social studies areas—concept development, United States history, world history, United States government, sociology, psychology and economics. Because the book includes both sample interdisciplinary lessons and lessons in specific subject areas, it can be used by any social studies teacher regardless of the course being taught. Teachers can make prejudice reduction an objective in their existing curriculum, rather than tacking it on as an extra, as is often the case. To guide students as they examine problems related to prejudice, the authors identify major concepts such as stereotypes, discrimination, and scapegoating. They specify thinking processes the students can use, moving from first level processes such as interpreting and comparing to higher-level processes such as analyzing and evaluating. Overall, they provide valuing processes that contribute to the development of a positive attitude. 080772601x
