Cesar Chavez--Grade Ten Model Curriculum and Resources.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
In this California state curriculum model for grade 10, "World History, Culture, and Geography: The Modern World," students stud the life, work, and philosophy of Cesar E. Chavez. The students learn about the historical developments of many of the ideas and philosophy of Chavez, particularly the evolution of democratic principles. Students discover Chavez's commitment to social change through nonviolent tactics that were modeled after Mahatma Gandhi. The curriculum presents a history/social science framework; addresses history/social science state standards; sets a context; poses focus questions; cites expected learning outcomes; discusses assessment; lists key concepts; suggests an essential vocabulary, primary sources, and visuals; and provides a detailed step-by-step procedure for implementing each of the three lessons. Lessons are: (1) "The Industrial Revolution and the Formation of Unions"; (2) "Fasting and Politics"; and (3) "Nelson Mandela and Cesar E. Chavez and Nonviolence." A biography for the development of Cesar Chavez curriculum for public schools, grades K-12, "Burning with a Patient Fire: The Legacy of Cesar Estrada Chavez" (Richard Griswold del Castillo) is attached (includes 44 notes). Appended are Nelson Mandela's presidential address to the African National Congress (Transvaal) and a document presented by Nelson Mandela to P. W. Botha before their meeting on July 5, 1989. (BT)
