Culture of the Caribbean Kit.
This document describes the contents of a kit considered to have been designed to extent the learning of pupils who are exposed to films, film strips, and other programs that introduce Puerto Ricans and people of other Caribbean regions. The kits are held to be usable in conjunction with the film strips, as library or showcase presentations, or as research projects. It is suggested that certain specific lessons be taught using objects from the kit after introducing the kit and organizing for its use by the children. Some examples of the lessons include stamps and coins of the Caribbean, a map review lesson, and Puerto Rico's santeria, a true folk art. Other examples for follow-up lessons include biographical studies and topical studies. References for teachers, mature students, and elementary and intermediate students are provided. This document forms part of a comprehensive program planned for and implemented in East New York to facilitate the adjustment of newly arrived Puerto Rican pupils and parents to the school and community.
