Aceves, Edward A., Comp.
Prepared for elementary teachers by teachers of the San Diego City Schools and participants of the San Diego State University Teacher Corps Program, this publication presents basic materials for teaching the Mexican/Chicano culture to pupils in grades K-6. Its purposes are to: (1) foster understanding of the culture and (2) engender a positive self-image and pride of cultural background within Mexican/Chicano pupils. The materials are divided into nine sections: (1) Calendar of Cultural Events; (2) Mexican/Chicano Classroom Activities; (3) Mexican/Chicano Arts and Crafts; (4) Mexican Dances; (5) Mexican/Chicano Songs; (6) Mexican/Chicano Proverbs, Poems, Rhymes, Limericks, Tongue Twisters, and Riddles; (7) Mexican/Chicano Games; (8) Mexican Holidays and Celebrations; and (9) Historical and Contemporary Mexican/Chicano Personalities. Much of the material should be utilized as background information by the teacher. The activities may be presented as schoolwide, classroom, small-group, or free-choice projects. Some of the materials are presented in both English and Spanish, some only in Spanish, and some only in English. An index is provided for easy reference. This publication is intended to be used along with the recording "Estudiantina 'El Cid' de Calexico". (NQ)
