Nieto-Gomez, Anna, Ed.
A team of outstanding Mexican American women educators from the Southwest designed these course outlines for college and university levels focusing on "la mujer Chicana" in history, literature, sociology, and higher education. This curriculum guide includes materials aimed to stimulate the student's examination of the Chicana in finding out who and what she is through a study of her culture, language, and heritage. Course outlines include: (1) "La Chicana in Higher Education"--an examination of higher education as an organization designed to prepare the Chicana to participate more effectively within the college and/or university structure; (2) "La Chicana in Literature"--a positive reinforcement for Chicana self-identity designed to motivate women to express themselves through literary works; (3) "Sociology of the Chicana"--a vivid presentation of the struggle against racism and sexism in society in general and in the Chicano community; and (4) "History of the Chicana"--a review of the Mexicana/Chicana's role in the history of Mexico and the United States and the future alternatives available through education. Intended to supplenent each of the course outlines, a 219-item bibliography is included. The bibliography cites books, pamphlets, articles, government publications, unpublished materials, and films on the Chicana. (Author/NQ)
