Project M. E. CH. I. C. A.: Materials para Estudios Chicanos Interculturales de America. Final Project Report.
Clark, Michal C.; Nieto, Jesus G.
A group of 25 Chicano, bilingual, community college students were selected to participate in this curriculum development project, 15 spending an entire semester in Mexico, and 10 going on a shorter tour. The major objectives of the project were: (1) to develop and disseminate bilingual Chicano Studies curriculum materials; (2) to train school personnel in the use of these materials; and (3) to develop an intercultural dimension to Chicano Studies. Fourteen teaching modules for public school classrooms were developed by the participating students, each providing prototype of necessary curriculum materials and orientation and resource materials for the teacher. Among the other project achievements were a Chicano literature anthology, an anthology on Mexican and Chicano thought and philosophy, an anthology on Mexican and Chicano art, videotapes, poetry tapes, a catalogued collection of pictures and slides, collections of Chicano Studies books and records, a comprehensive bibliography of Chicano Studies materials, and indices to Chicano Studies materials. The anthologies, indices, and media materials form a core of curriculum materials for use at the community college level. Special attention is paid to the international and interinstitutional aspects of the project, and the curriculum model is discussed in detail. (KB)
