Ethnic Heritage Studies: German-American Profiles and Contributions--Major Figures. Experimental Unit.
This teaching guide focuses on several prominent German-Americans and their contributions to American life, and provides some insights into German culture. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The project materials are designed to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines. The objectives for this unit are to acquaint students with German-Americans such as Albert Einstein, Dwight Eisenhower, Lilli Lehmann, John Steinbeck, "Babe" Ruth, and Karen Horney, to help students recognize contributions to and effects on American life of these prominent people; and to provide background information on German culture. Suggested time allotment is one to two weeks. The guide includes a pretest, posttest, and five behavioral objectives accompanied by instructional strategies and facilitating materials, including group discussion, independent research, and role playing. A worksheet, designed to aid the student in doing independent research, lists the prominent persons. A bibliography of resources concludes the unit. (Author/CK)
