Sixth Grade Social Studies Unit and Student Readings.
Park Forest Public Schools District 163, IL.
This unit, consisting of a teaching guide and student reading materials, focuses on the Mexican American as an object of social discrimination in this country. Utilizing books, poems, filmstrips, and tapes, as well as the reading materials provided, the Mexican-American history and culture are examined. Detailed learning experiences are suggested to aid student understanding of the generalizations for the unit. The main generalization is, "Discriminatory practices directed against Mexican-American citizens of the United States have limited opportunities for members of this group and deprived our society of their full contributions." This idea is supported by several subgeneralizations. See SO 000 584 for a listing of related documents. (JLB)
