Chicano Content and Social Work Education.
Sotomayor, Marta, Ed.; Ortego y Gasca, Philip D., Ed.
This document results from a conference designed to compel participants to identify and develop curriculum content from the Chicano viewpoint. The speakers provide alternative perspectives for developing the desired content. Issues discussed are: an action model for education, the role of linguistics in shaping the individual from his personality to his world view, the valuing theory applied to making the difficult choices of selecting items for inclusion into the curriculum, a radical perspective on the need for social change and the value of ideology for an oppressed group, and the barrio experience as a set of means for survival in suburbia.
