Indio and Hispano Child: Improving His Self Image.
Gallegos, Katherine Powers, Ed.
Prepared under a Title IV Civil Rights program grant, this document consists of social studies units for grades 1 and 4, suggestions for a culturally oriented arts program, biographical sketches of cultural models, and brief historical sketches of communities in the area of Los Lunas, New Mexico. The purpose of the units of instruction and related materials is to build a better self-image on the part of pupils belonging to minority groups. The social studies unit for grade 1 is a comparative study of family life in 3 cultures: Indian, Mexican or Spanish, and Anglo. The unit stresses that people of different cultures can live and work together appreciating what each has contributed from its heritage. The social studies unit for grade 4 is a comparative study of the role that those 3 cultures have played in the development of New Mexico. This unit attempts to promote attitudes, appreciation, and understanding that will contribute to a blending of the 3 cultures into a plural Southwest culture. (JH)
