Ethnic Heritage Studies: The Immigrant Experience: The Long, Long, Journey. Experimental Unit.
This teaching guide focuses on the dreams and realities of one family's immigration and assimilation into the American society. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The materials are designed to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines. The objective of this unit is to help students understand and appreciate the immigrant experience, stressing such concepts as assimilation, conformity, prejudice, discrimination, poverty, and peer group. Planned as a supplement for social studies or English, it is suggested that one week be spent on the unit. The guide includes a pretest and seven behavioral objectives accompanied by instructional strategies and listing facilitating materials. The film "The Immigrant Experience: The Long, Long Journey" is used for class discussion, analysis, essay writing, and role playing. A worksheet suggesting ideas for a role-playing skit illustrating assimilation problems, a posttest, and bibliography of resources conclude the unit. (Author/CK)
