Burdette, Barbara; Echevarria, Francisco
This 11-unit curriculum guide on Puerto Rican culture is intended for both Puerto Rican and and non-Puerto Rican teachers and students living in Connecticut. Although the materials are written for use in grades six through nine, they can be adapted for older or younger students. Topics include Puerto Rican history, ethnology, geography, economy, politics, religion, migration, unique cultural traits, family structure, language, arts, music, holidays, and foods. These topics are discussed in terms of the Island, the American mainland, and, in some units, the state of Connecticut. Each unit includes student activities such as map work, vocabulary development, drama, research, and art work. An annotated bibliography for each unit is included. Concluding sections present recipes, an annotated listing of films and filmstrips, and names of organizations in New York and Connecticut which can supply further information in Spanish and English. There is also a dictionary of commonly-used Spanish phrases and words rendered in Spanish and English with phonetic spelling. (DL)
