The student booklet presents short chapters illustrating the enclaves unit of the Minneapolis Multi-Ethnic Curriculum Project for secondary schools. A seven-page comic book is also included in the document. Six brief chapters in the student booklet describe ethnic neighborhoods and occupations. Chapter I discusses the Cuban refugees in Miami as well as their life, customs, bilingualism, and need to preserve their ethnic heritage. Chapter II presents the Arab Muslim community in Dearborn, Michigan and their religion and family life. Chapter III is entitled "A Visit to Cajun Country" and tells stories about life with the Cajuns in Louisiana. Chapter III lists the ten best cities in the United States for blacks for economic, political, and cultural development and rates them for overall quality of life. Chapter V offers a brief overview of occupations that have been traditionally identified with certain ethnic groups. The final chapter tells of the Mohawk Indian tribe and their work with steel, beginning with bridge building and transfering to building in general. The comic book consists of three two-page stories illustrating discrimination and stereotyping. (CK)
