Cotera, Martha T.
A companion volume to the user's guide to the Benson Collection, this teaching guide is designed to encourage students to use Mexican American community resources to supplement textbook materials. The first section, which comprises five exercises for elementary and secondary students covers the definition of information and primary source materials, producers of information, historical biography, Hispanic women, and Mexican American art and music. Educational objectives, procedures, activities, materials, and definitions are provided; background readings, resource persons and community involvement strategies, field trips, and classroom materials are discussed in the resources section; and a professional bibliography is included. An overview and educational objectives precede the course units for 2-year college students in the second part. Topics, student projects and activities are outlined for each of the five units and recommended readings are listed for four of the five. A chronology of Mexican American history and instructions for conducting an interview are appended. (RBF)
