The Immigrant Experience: A Polish-American Model. Teacher's Guide.
Indiana Univ., Bloomington. Social Studies Development Center.
Designed to supplement 11th grade U.S. history textbooks, these self-contained activities will help students learn about the Polish American experience. To facilitate usage, the teacher's guide contains a series of charts keying the activities to 10 widely used textbooks. The activities are organized around 5 themes: (1) The Colonial Period: Early Polish-American Influence; (2) The American Revolution through the Civil War: Polish American Perspectives; (3) Reconstruction and Immigration; (4) Immigration and Industrialization; (5) Contemporary Issues, Concerns, and Perspectives. The following information is provided for each activity: rationale, key concepts and objectives, description of the activity, and a list of resources used in developing the activity. Students read, discuss, and answer questions about short reading selections provided in the student booklet. Other activities involve students in role playing, analyzing case studies, reading primary source materials, and analyzing census data. An annotated bibliography lists background reading materials; student curriculum materials; films, filmstrips, and music; organizations and centers; and literary works. (RM)
