Cultural Awareness: Learning Your Way Around a New Culture. Revised.
Casto, Glen; And Others
This cultural awareness course has been designed to help American junior high school age students integrate various dimensions of Puerto Rican culture with their native culture through an experientially based program of instructional activities. Lessons on the identification, demonstration, and discussion of behaviors indigenous to persons of Puerto Rican heritage are included along with behaviorally measurable instructional objectives. Detailed teacher information on time required for each lesson, materials needed, instructional strategies, and suggested implementation of activities is included. Various lessons provide practice in speaking Spanish and imitating culturally specific behaviors used in interpersonal exchange. A Cross Culture Simulation Game designed to enhance the students' cultural awareness, a pre- and posttest to be administered to students, and a student critique of the course are included. The authors have included a general bibliography of printed materials, filmstrips and films, as well as a bibliography of printed material more specifically relating to Puerto Rico. Both bibliographies are partially annotated. (JS)
