Ilustres hispanos de los EE. UU. (Famous Hispanics of the U.S.).
Mardenborough, Teresa; St. Sauver, Dennis
A teacher's guide and black line masters for student activity sheets for Hispanic cultural enrichment education are presented. Designed for students from elementary school through high school, the materials concern 12 short biographies of Americans of Hispanic descent. The subjects are successful contemporary personalities who have become famous in their respective fields and spokesmen for the Hispanic communities of this country. The teacher's guide provides an overview of the program with emphasis on the enrichment activities. Summaries of the stories are included, and suggestions for using the materials in a bilingual classroom are offered. A bibliography is designed to help bilingual teachers to find other sources. Student activity sheets concern comprehension, vocabulary, and creative exercises. The comprehension skill sheets focus on: (1) recalling and locating details of the story, (2) recognizing the main theme or idea of the story, and (3) an interpretive question that calls for value judgments by the student and provides practice for writing. Two of the vocabulary sheets provide an introductory comparison of English and Spanish, and vocabulary puzzles approach some of the more unique and difficult words in each story from a game format. The creative activity sheets provide a variety of enrichment skills emphasizing Hispanic arts and culture as well as the personalities featured in the stories. (SW)
