A Total Immersion in the Hispano Culture, A Model Unit; Handbook for Simulated Experiences in Human Relations.
Adams County School District 12, Denver, CO.
Under the auspices of the Kettering Foundation, School District No. 12, Adams County, Colorado, designed a pilot program to enable students to become actively involved in realistic and meaningful experiences with at least 2 minority cultures: Hispano and, to a lesser extent, American Indian. The unit in this publication was developed to give a large group of elementary students an opportunity to learn about the vast rich Hispano culture through simulated experiences which are instrumental in nurturing knowledge, feelings, positive attitudes, and a greater awareness of the student, teacher, and parent in improved human relations. The unit is divided into 4 major parts: (1) The Roots of Hispano Culture, (2) The Emergence of the Hispano Culture, (3) The Hispano Culture in a Modern Urban Society, and (4) Culminating Activity. Included in this handbook are bibliographies for each phase of Hispano culture. The Appendix contains information on the Mexican flag, Navajo rugs, and planning procedures for new Spanish towns. A section dealing with Spanish-English vocabulary is also included. (EJ)
