Tipple, Bruce E.; Whitehead, Pamela
The document presents six 10-20 page student booklets for the Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Project for secondary schools. Booklet I, "Acculturation," discusses how immigrants became Americanized through education and intermarriage. Booklet II defines and enlarges upon various concepts relating to ethnicity. Booklet III presents background information on the Vietnamese immigration. Booklet IV discusses physical, social, economic, political, and moral/ethical power. Various aspects of migration including emigration and immigration are summarized in Booklet V. The final booklet, "Enclaves," examines ethnic neighborhoods. Each booklet presents clear definitions, is illustrated with drawings or photographs, includes pages asking for thoughtful input by students, and ends with a page encouraging students to hypothesize about the topic. Other components of the project are presented in SO 012 414-423. (CK)
