Modulo Navideno, Nivel Primario. (Christmas Module, Primary Level.)
Espinoza, Delia; Lopez, Santiago, III
Four units are combined to form this primary level unit on Navidad (Christmas). It discusses and compares 3 cultures: the Mexican, the Chicano, and the Anglo-Saxon. The unit consists of: (1) "La Muneca Mas Bella de Wildrose", a story by Amado Nervo which shows children's feelings of love and tenderness; (2) the Mexican tale "El Regalo", a detailed panorama of a beautiful town -- Taxco (Guerrero), Mexico; (3) the Chicano tale, "Recuerdos" which depicts the culture that is enclosed in the Mexican American people; (4) "El Angel Caido", a story, illustrated by children, whose principal objective is to demonstrate the Chicano child's art, sensitiveness, and imagination; and (5) a brief history of the origin of Navidad, the posadas, and the pinata. Objectives, a pretest and a posttest, a story, a vocabulary list of new words, and some suggested activities are given for each unit. The vocabulary, place, people, and history are characteristic of Chicanismo; the student-teacher interaction and the familiarity shown are distinct from those characteristic of other races. The Anglo-Saxon history shows their way of life and feelings, which differ greatly from those of the Mexican or Chicano. (NQ)
