Project Exchange, Proyecto Intercambio: A Guide to Exploring Hispanic and North American Cultures.
Perez, Maria L.; Zanger, Virginia Vogel
Based on a successful high school student exchange program, a curriculum was designed to bring together Hispanic students learning English and Anglo students learning Spanish for intercultural experiences. The flexible curriculum includes over 40 activities that students can participate in while meeting together once a week for either a brief period (several weeks) or an entire term. The activities deal with issues, including cultural misconceptions, found to be of interest to high school students, and that may be appropriate for subjects other than language. Topics include verbal and nonverbal communication, family structure and customs, male-female relationships, lifestyle, food and manners, religion and superstition, holidays, schooling, music and dance, and the "American dream." The teaching guide consists of explanations for each activity, containing a list of issues for group discussion, hints for preparation, and follow-up assignments. Student worksheets for each activity, in Spanish and English, are appended. A form for student evaluation of the program and a brief bibliography are also included. (MSE)
