Community-Based Ethnic Heritage Studies Program. Final Report.
Nolan, Richard D.; And Others
Results of a cooperative project among students, teachers, administrators, and community members involved in ethnic studies activities are reported. The document describes goals, procedures, results, and evaluation. A resource handbook is also included. Four goals were established: to identify potentially contributing ethnic groups in the community, to assist newly emigrated individuals in identifying with previously assimilated ethnic groups, to develop educational and community ethnic groups as working resources, and to increase offerings in the existing ethnic heritage studies program. An evaluation of the program indicates that it has been extremely successful. Accomplishments include formation of ethnic-oriented community advocacy groups; development of community and educational resources including a corps of tutors and translators; a variety of local histories; peer instruction in ethnic heritage studies; a filmstrip/recording of the community's history; and an ethnic heritage celebration festival. The resource handbook includes a list of materials/resources and contact persons at the resource centers. Appendices present the project management plan and describe the oral history and pen pal programs. (KC)
