Biographical/Historical Note

A program held during the summer for minority group and educationally disadvantaged youth. “The 1970 Intercultural Education Program at the Wisconsin State University–Eau Claire Laboratory School is designed to promote an understanding of and a positive feeling for one’s own culture and values as well as the culture and values of other sub-culture groups….The instructional content will concentrate in the areas of art, clothing, music, folklore, leaders and history of an intercultural exchange level between students.” “Resources persons from various cultures and field trips of an inter-cultural nature will be utilized within the content areas to improve the communication skills and learning environment and to work toward program objectives. The Intercultural Education Program school staff will consist of master teachers, certified teachers taking the graduate workshop [Teaching the Disadvantaged workshop], Teaching the Culturally Disadvantaged, and active teachers working toward baccalaureate degrees. Supportive services will come from the reading clinic, department school psychologist, department social worker, audio-visual department, P.E. department, and school health services.” The program is supported in part by Title I, ESEA funds administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction under the supervision of Mr. Frank Brown, Title I Administrator. (Inter-Cultural Education, A Combined Report On: Teaching the Disadvantaged, a summer workshop and The Inter-Cultural Education Program, a WSU-EC Laboratory School Program for Educationally Disadvantaged Youth, 1970, p. 1-6)

Dr. John Stoelting, a professor of Education, was a coordinator and instructor of the “Teaching the Culturally Disadvantaged” summer session workshop and Director of the Inter-Cultural Education Program. Stoelting and Dr. Duane Sackett helped coordinate the Inter-Cultural Education Program.
