This guide is divided into three parts. Part 1 provides the purpose and goals of ethnic studies and explains how to use the guide. Part 2 contains eight units for the study of ethnic experiences. These include (1) Native American, (2) Mexican American, (3) Black American, (4) Jewish American, (5) Italian American, (6) Polish American, (7) Japanese American, and (8) Puerto Rican. All but one of the units begin with an introduction, after which inquiry topics are presented. Inquiry topics contain learning concepts (objectives), questions for exploration, and activities and projects. A bibliography of resources completes each ethnic experience unit. Part 3 contains three appendixes, the first of which is a paper entitled Ethnicity and Education: Cultural Homogeneity and Ethnic Conflict. The second appendix is an analysis of a NEA/NJEA Ethnic Studies Programming Survey, and the third contains abstracts of projects funded by the Ethnic Heritage Studies Program, ESEA Title IX. Learning concepts and activities are listed for each inquiry topic. Instructional materials are listed for each ethnic experience unit. No provision indicated. (RC)
