Topics in Jewish-American Heritage: A Study and Curriculum Outline.
Becker, Evelyn; And Others
In this age of ethnic awareness, the United Federation of Teachers has created this publication to help teachers enlighten secondary students on the contributions of Jewish Americans. The book stresses the accomplishment of American Jews in the context of a broader understanding of the nature of ethnicity. Designed to supplement existing social studies curricula, the book can also be used in combination with similar units on other minority groups. Three major areas are examined: (1) Jewish Migration to America; (2) The Development of the Jewish Community in New York; and (3) Jews in the American Labor Movement. Each section contains an introduction, goals of the unit, an illustrated narrative, and study questions and activities. A glossary and a selected bibliography conclude the document. (Author/JR)
