"From Immigrant to Ethnic": A Curriculum Package.
Murray, Katherine
RIFLA Gazette, v2 n1 p18-22 Fall 1977
This article describes a curriculum package in ethnic studies designed for high school use by the Ethnic Heritage Studies Project, Rhode Island College. This multi-ethnic curriculum examines the experiences common to all immigrant groups which came to the United States. The package consists of three self-contained units: "The Immigrant Experience,""Becoming American," and "No Irish Need Apply." The materials are designed to be integrated into existing course offerings, such as American history, sociology, and other social studies. Each complete package contains a teacher manual, 30 student packets per unit, audiovisual materials and a board game entitled "Entry 1925," which simulates the immigrants' experience at Ellis Island. The student readings focus on ethnic groups which settled in Rhode Island. Although the materials are most effective when used as a whole, each unit can be used independently as a two-to-three week experience. This article includes sample materials excerpted from the package. (Author/AM)
