The document presents unit overviews describing activities in the Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project for secondary schools. It is divided into seven sections, each relating to a specific topic. Sections are entitled ethnicity, migration, acculturation, ethnic enclaves, family, prejudice/discrimination, and power. Each section offers from nine to 15 activities designed to develop social studies skills, especially those related to multicultural education. Each activity includes an introduction, three to five educational objectives, and a list of needed materials. The introduction briefly describes what the students do. Topics covered include values and behavior, celebrations and ceremonies, various ethnic groups, immigration and emigration, geography, occupations, family trees, United States history, and leadership. Sample activities include suggestions for researching, making collages, reading, viewing films and filmstrips, analyzing charts and graphs, hypothesizing, role playing, simulation gaming, interviewing, classifying, and taking surveys. Other components of the project are presented in SO 012 415-423. (CK)
