Attitudinal Characteristics of Migrant Farm Workers. First Papers on Migrancy and Rural Poverty: An Introduction to the Education of Mexican-Americans in Rural Areas.
A presentation on socio-cultural-attitudinal characteristics of migrants and the impact of education is one of a series of lectures given during the pre-service phase of a 2-year Teacher Corps training program. An outline of the cultural differences which exist between the Mexican American and the Anglo American reveals differences in personality characteristics and modes of life style. Problems are described which the Mexican American encounters in the process of acculturation, and programs are suggested which are designed to satisfy the needs of the Mexican American and to give him a positive image of his cultural heritage. Interview summaries and schedule, and worksheet scales used in the pre-service phase of the program are included. Related documents are RC 003 081 and RC 003 082. (SW)
