Croatian Ethnic Heritage Studies Kit.
Duquesne Univ., Pittsburgh, PA.
The audiovisual kit is designed to help fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students explore the cultural heritage of Croatians and trace past folklore to modern life styles of Croatian immigrants in America. Its multimedia format, which includes two cassette tapes, four filmstrips, two phonograph records, a miniature musical instrument, and seven student books, minimizes the importance of reading ability to the achievement of success in the program. The teacher encourages students to participate in singing and dancing activities. A syllabus and teacher's manual provide teaching ideas and background information about Croatian folk arts. The seven units of study cover Croatian national heritage, songs, dances, instruments, costumes, Christmas traditions, and crafts. The two records supplement the units on songs and dances; the cassettes supplement content on ethnic heritage and musical instruments; and the filmstrips illustrate heritage, costumes, folk instruments, and the tamburitza (a musical instrument). Available in microfiche from EDRS are six of the student books, the syllabus, and the teacher's manual. (AV)
