American and Polish Culture: A Guide to the Resource Materials Collection.
Grand Rapids Public Schools, MI.
This guide describes resource materials which are intended for use by elementary and secondary classroom teachers and by community groups as they develop and implement educational programs on Polish/American culture. The major objectives are to enhance Americans' understanding of Poland and to highlight cultural contributions of Americans of Polish descent. Materials are presented in three main categories. Part I presents annotations of print materials arranged alphabetically by author in 10 subject areas: art and culture, biography, education, film and television, general information, Polish history, language, Polish-American cultural organizations, literature, and sports. Entries include author, title, publisher, and date of publication. Part II lists approximately 300 materials relating to Poland's geography, people, political system, social policy, political organizations, education, art, economy, scientific research, language, foreign policy, and America's Polish heritage. In this section, entries include author, title, publisher, date of publication, and relevant page numbers. Part III focuses on non print materials including maps and prints, posters, postcards, stamps, filmstrips, recordings, and slides. Information given for each entry includes size of exhibit, viewing or listening time, translation of Polish words into English, teaching instructions, and where necessary, background material and objectives. The guide concludes with an appendix containing information on ordering all print and nonprint materials and suggesting additional supplementary materials and resource organizations. (DB)
