Chinese Cultural Resource Book (For Elementary Bilingual Teachers).
This publication was prepared using funds provided by 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act Title VII to the Chinese Bilingual Pilot Program. Teachers instructing in bilingual programs or in multicultural programs know the difficulty of introducing Chinese traditions to children without any resource guides or educational materials. This resource book is intended to provide some reading references to assist the teachers in these fields. The materials in this book are based mostly on personal experiences and research. Although these customs were experienced when the author was a child living in Hong Kong and Canton, they are still practiced in the Chinese-American communities today. The materials in this resource book are intended for teachers in the Chinese Bilingual Bicultural Programs. There are six sections: stories, poems, songs, games, art projects, and recipes. Each section is related to the five major Chinese festivals--Moon Festival, Winter Festival, Chinese New Year, Ching Ming, and Dragon Boat Festival. Some materials are also related to seasonal, transportation, and family topics. The story section includes Chinese legends, myths, and folktales. (Author/JM)
