UNDERSTANDING THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN IN TODAY'S CULTURE. SAN DIEGO PROJECT--ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT.
BELLIAEFF, ALEXANDER
THE CLASSIFICATION, MEXICAN-AMERICAN, IS EXTREMELY BROAD AND INCLUDES ALL PEOPLES OF HISPANIC DESCENT. WHILE SOME MEXICAN-AMERICANS HAVE BEEN RESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES SINCE BEFORE THE NATION WAS FORMED, OTHERS HAVE MIGRATED OR ILLEGALLY CROSSED THE BORDER ONLY RECENTLY. MANY OF THESE PEOPLE RESIDE WITHIN METROPOLITAN AREAS AND REMAIN CULTURALLY APART FROM ANGLO-AMERICA. FREQUENTLY, EDUCATORS CHARGED WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF TEACHING THESE MEXICAN-AMERICAN CHILDREN HAVE FAILED TO UNDERSTAND THE BASIC CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THIS MINORITY GROUP. THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THIS GUIDE IS TO ASSIST THOSE EDUCATORS IN GAINING SOME INSIGHT INTO THIS PROBLEM. THE GUIDE IS DIVIDED INTO FIVE UNITS AS FOLLOWS--(1) A HISTORY OF MEXICO AND THE MEXICAN AMERICANS FROM THE PRE-COLUMBIAN ERA TO THE PRESENT, (2) FAMOUS MEXICANS IN EARLY CALIFORNIA HISTORY, (3) MEXICAN IMMIGRATION TO THE UNITED STATES, (4) THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MEXICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY INCLUDING THE FAMILY, HOUSING, EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT, AND MEXICAN-AMERICAN LEADERSHIP AND ORGANIZATIONS IN CALIFORNIA, AND (5) A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF ADDITIONAL RESOURCE INFORMATION.
