Social Studies Unit "Los Hispanos."
Valdez, Bernard; And Others
The Social Studies Curriculum Committee of School District No. 12, Adams County, Colorado, developed this booklet in an effort to offer a more complete social studies program since administrators and teachers in the system recognized the need for a better understanding of the contributions of the "Hispanos," the forgotten minority, to the development of the Southwest. Material given in the document was designed to help teachers understand the culture, and thereby the needs, of the Hispano child. Selected articles on history, economics, culture changes and acculturation, and education are included, and 2 social studies teaching units are provided: "Mi Amigos-Pilgrims of the Southwest" for primary grades and "The Forgotten People-Mi Amigos" for intermediate grades. In addition, a selected book list on Hispanic heritage provides citations appropriate for all age groups. (EJ)
