This guide is designed to help teachers and supervisors in planning activities for observing Ethnic Heritage and Culture Weeks in the New York City Board of Education calendar.

Groups discussed in these sections are the Slavs, Puerto Ricans, Japanese, blacks, Chinese, Irish, Greeks, Pan Americans, Jews, Italians, and Scandinavians. Each section presents themes, background information, activities, lists of outstanding individuals from the group being discussed, a bibliography, and audiovisual aids, media resources, and organizations related to the group.
