America's Women of Color: Integrating Cultural Diversity into Non-Sex-Biased Curricula. Filmstrip User's Guide for La Mujer Hispana: Mito y Realidad (The Hispanic Woman: Myth and Reality).
Saint Paul Public Schools, MN.
This document is one of five filmstrip users' guides that can be used to increase understanding of minority women in the United States by supplying basic information on their histories, current concerns, myths, and misleading stereotypes. The guide was designed to be used with a filmstrip entitled "La Mujer Hispana: Mito y Realidad (The Hispanic Woman: Myth and Reality)" and to help teachers of secondary and postsecondary students to integrate ethnic group information into existing curricula. The focus of the guide and filmstrip is on three groups of Hispanic women: Chicanas, Cubanas, and Puertorriquenas. A discussion guide presents four objectives, discussion questions and topics, and references to sources of additional information. A filmstrip script is provided, containing narration for the 69-frame filmstrip. Three charts supply education and employment statistics for Hispanic women. A teacher-developed 5-day lesson plan for seventh through ninth grade students is included, which uses the five filmstrips in the series to explore the roles of minority women. An essay, on the historical background, stereotypes and myths, economic situation, and current and future concerns of Hispanic women, is appended. (FG)
