Latino Materials. A Multimedia Guide for Children and Young Adults.
Duran, Daniel Flores
In the last decade the phenomenal growth of bilingual/bicultural programs for Spanish-speaking people has been accompanied by a critical need for learning materials which provide current, historically accurate, nonracist and nonstereotypic information on the contributions, heritage and current status of the various Spanish-speaking groups. Prepared to assist the librarian, teacher and curriculum specialist seeking educational materials for Latino children, this guide includes both printed works and 16mm film titles, published or developed primarily since the mid-1960's. Part I of the guide presents four essays exploring the background of Latino life and literature in the United States, as well as library services to Latinos. The next three sections list 473 general, Mexican American, and Puerto Rican resources; each section is further divided into materials for elementary, secondary and professional use. Entries include complete bibliographic information, recommended grade level, and source from which the material may be ordered. Annotations accompanying each entry are intended to be critical as well as descriptive and include information ranging from notes on the authors to comparisons of related works. The last two sections include a glossary of pertinent terms and a directory of publishers and distributors of Latino materials. Subject and author/title indices are appended. (DS)
