La Experiencia Mexicana (The Mexican Experience). Volumes I and II.
Finer, Neal B.
Designed to be used as part of a comprehensive social studies program on Mexican culture, this two-volume manual, written in Spanish, offers an instructional package on Mexican culture, stressing an art-architecture perspective, which can be used at the secondary, college and adult levels. The teacher's guide, Volume I, includes a discussion of a high school elective course using art and social studies, a discussion of art and architecture in an educational setting, and a suggested structure for teaching a 3 1/2-week unit on Mexican culture. Volume I concludes with eight detailed sample lessons on Mexican culture as seen in art and architecture, Mexico's 1968 Cultural Olympics, Mexican artistic expressions in home furnishings, Mexico's recent modern artists and architecture, influence of French styles on Mexican culture, and Mexican influence on contemporary art and architecture of the United States. Each lesson includes key ideas, objectives, specific activities, evaluation modes, and annotated references for teachers and students. Volume II provides detailed student handouts, charts, maps, transparency masters, content outlines, and illustrations for multisensory stimuli. The manual has been widely field tested in the United States and Mexico. (NQA)
