The Heritage and Contributions of the Hispanic American. Teacher's Edition.
Denver Public Schools, CO.
This booklet was developed to help elementary school students to understand the contributions of the Hispano to our American way of life: 1) to learn something about the history of the Hispanic people --the Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Spanish, Mexican-American, and Spanish-American; and, 2) to develop an understanding of the political and cultural differences between ethnic or racial groups, and the individual differences between the human beings that make up these groups. Suggested activities are enumerated: map work, time-line building, thought questions, discussion, oral reports, vocabulary study, diorama, creative writing, games, and resource use. The individual units are: 1) Spain, World Power; 2) Spanish Exploration in the Americas; 3) Spanish Colonialism; 4) Early Settlements; 5) Spanish Missions in the New World; 6) Mexico Wins Independence from Spain; 7) Encroachment of Mexico; and, 8) Spanish Settlement in Colorado. Teacher references and books for student reading are listed in a 4 page bibliography which includes the price of each publication. (SBE)
