Milagros: Symbols of Hope=Milagros: Simbolos de Esperanza. Teacher's Guide [and] Student Booklet.
Walkup, Nancy; Warwick, Sharon
A milagro is a little metal pendant that symbolizes a request, a prayer, or a wish. This "Teacher's Guide" and bilingual "Student Booklet" accompany a bilingual videotape and color wall poster in a multimedia package intended to introduce students in grades 3-8 to the folk art tradition of milagros. The videotape, presented first in English and then in Spanish, presents the narrated story of Alfonso's Milagro in Part 1. Part 2: Symbols of Hope, presents historical/cultural content on milagros. Part 3: Symbols in Relief, illustrates the steps involved in a production activity. The teacher's guide includes introductory information, a vocabulary list, discussion topics and questions, and lesson plans for a mixed-media relief rubbing and a metal tooling relief activity. Interdisciplinary extensions, a time line of milagros, and assessment activities are included. The student booklet, printed in both English and Spanish, contains a summary of the video program, quizzes, worksheets, and a vocabulary list. (MM)
