Rodarte, Dolores, Ed.; And Others
Reflecting the observations made by Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans in the Southwest, Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast, this unit aims to develop artistic sensitivity through the study of different art forms of music, dance, literature, folklore, and the visual arts. Comprised of Kits 1-4, the unit's theme is "our community", with a spiraling question developed in each kit. In Kit 1, pupils identify movement in music, literature, painting, folklore and dance. The spiraling question developed is, Who is the individual? In Kit 2, pupils learn how intensity appears in music, painting, literature and dance. The spiraling question developed is, What are the individual's alternatives? Kits 1 and 2 include a pupil's book "Canta, baila y escucha", a cassette, and slides. In Kit 3, pupils recognize how form appears in literature, music, painting, folklore and dance. The spiraling question developed is, How can the individual initiate change? In Kit 4, pupils learn how style appears in painting, architecture, dance, music, and folklore. The spiraling question developed is, What happens as a result of change? Kits 3 and 4 include a pupil's book "Los pueblos crean", a cassette, and slides. The guide, written mainly in Spanish, includes the words and music of the songs, musical stories, creative dramatics, simple characterizations, classroom plays, folk literature, and other teaching suggestions.
