Puerto Ricans in the United States: A Review of the Literature.
This document was developed by the New York Component of the Multilingual Assessment Program and disseminated by a federally funded project under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965, as amended. Intended for educators, this document is an extensively annotated resource book, providing up-to-date information on current advances of bilingual education as well as information on the historical, economic, sociological, and anthropological aspects of the Puerto Ricans, Mexican Americans, Blacks, Cubans, American Indians, Jews and other minority groups. Emphasis is on testing, cognitive style, and teacher training. The original purpose of this project was to review all the available literature on the educational experience of Puerto Rican children on the mainland, with an emphasis on educational testing, cognitive style, and teacher training. Subsequently it was decided to expand the scope of the study to include materials which have historical, economic, sociological, and anthropological relevance to the Puerto Rican experience as a whole. Among the sources used in preparation of this bibliography are Research in Education, Current Index to Journals in Education, Education Index, Exceptional Child Abstracts, Psychological Abstracts, and Dissertation Abstracts International. Entries are complete through December 1972. (Author/JM)
