In this elective quinmester course clustering around behavioral studies, Junior high students study Cuban heritage; Cuban events leading up to the migration to the U.S.; and Cuban-American population as it now exists in the U.S., including refugee problems, contributions, and the future. The focus is upon helping teachers and students understand and view the Cuban influx in Miami as a unique social phenomenon by comparing similarities between problems faced by earlier immigrants to America and those faced by minority groups such as today's Cuban refugees. The course content outline contains seven parts: 1) the nature and significance of the Cuban influx; 2) a brief survey of Cuban culture, geography, and history; 3) a study of America's Spanish heritage; 4) the psycho-social, economic, language, educational, and cultural problems of the immigrants; 5) contributions made by Cubans; 6) significance of cultural pluralism; and 7) examination of how the study might affect the future relationships of Cubans in Miami, along with suggestions for better human relations. The format arrangement is identical to other quinmester courses with sections on goals, content outline, objectives, learning activities, and materials. (Author/SJM)
