A Model Program in Multi-Ethnic Heritage Studies. Annotated Bibliographies of Ethnic Studies Materials.
This annotated bibliography contains evaluations of selected source materials in ethnic studies for teachers and students. It is divided into Multi-Ethnic Resources, Italian-American Resources, Polish-American and Slavic-American Resources, German-American Resources, and Norwegian- and Swedish-American Resources. At the end of every annotated entry are evaluations made by various journals and the evaluation of the bibliography editor. The sources were examined to determine if they covered certain aspects of the ethnic group. These aspects included (1) history and conditions of the people in the particular country; (2) reasons for immigration; (3) experiences of the group and individuals as they underwent immigration and resettlement; (4) attitudes of other people in America toward the ethnic group; (5) discrimination and prejudice the ethnic group faced; (6) aspirations and goals of the group; (7) social, economic, political, and cultural conditions and processes; (8) positive and negative contributions of the group; (9) individual contributions; (10) ethnic experiences in rural and urban areas; (11) representation of the ethnic group in different walks of life worthy of emulation; (12) the question of acculturation versus pluralism; and (13) current developments towards pluralism or assimilation.
