Tiempos Pasados (Past Times). Grass-Roots Oral History.
Hunsaker, Alan, Ed.
Compiled with learning objectives, suggested lesson plans, learning center activities, and selected teacher and student bibliographies for use at the elementary level, transcripts of oral history interviews with 11 Mexican Americans in San Bernardino County's West End provide understanding of the mass movement of Mexicans to the United States in the early twentieth century. The oral histories describe: the efforts of a Chicano ranch foreman to locate and hire unemployed Chicanos during the 1930's; four personal views of the Mexican Revolution and the resulting immigration to the United States; a childhood encounter with Pancho Villa; life as a Salinas Valley strawberry farmer; work in the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935; recollections of barrio warfare during the 1930's, 1940's, and 1950's; accomplishments of a Chicana educator; and the struggle of a young Chicano now working on a Ph.D. in international relations. Learning objectives include verbally outlining the struggles of a Mexican immigrant in the early 1900's; defining prejudices and discrimination; and demonstrating the use of oral history methods. Suggested activities include: map, diorama, and flag making projects; reading and discussion; developing family oral histories; and mural and puppet construction. (NEC)
