Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project--Ethnicity Unit.
Skjervold, Christian K.; And Others
The student booklet presents short case studies illustrating the ethnicity unit of the Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project for secondary schools. Twelve brief chapters describe various aspects of the life, values, behavior, education, culture, and religious ceremonies and feelings of different ethnic groups in the United States. They present stories of individuals in groups such as the Hutterites, Japanese Buddhists, Jews, Irish Americans, suburbanites, Polish Americans, Chinese Americans, American Indians, and Italian Americans. One chapter lists Polish customs throughout the year, another discusses Italian food, still another describes the Tamburitzan, an East European performing folk group. The chapter on American Indians focuses on the language and lists places and states with Indian names. Many of the stories are presented in first person accounts, although some are descriptive. All stress ethnicity. (CK)
