West, Patricia M.; Otero, George G.
Two teaching units present a total of 11 Hispanic folk songs as instructional aids to learning about Hispanic culture, traditions, and language. Designed for students in kindergarten through third grade, the units each contain a teacher's guide. A cassette tape is designed to accompany each unit and is available from the Center for Teaching International Relations. Unit one is an introductory unit. On the tape, four songs are sung in Spanish with introductions to each. The guide contains general background information, suggestions for classroom activities and learning centers, home use ideas, transcripts of the tape in English and Spanish, and specific learning strategies to accompany each song. A map of Mexico and the American Southwest is included. The second unit is especially designed for use in bilingual programs. Seven songs are on the tape in Spanish. The guide explains the historical background of folk songs; describes specific song types such as the romance, decima, and corrido; and provides song words in both Spanish and English. The songs include lullabies, Christmas carols, animal stories, and marching songs. Teachers are encouraged to involve parents and grandparents in the learning experience. The materials can be used in individualized or group settings. (AV)
