Exploring the rich diversity of ethnicity and culture in the United States, teachers and students are invited to explore not only ethnic enclaves in America but also in their own communities as well. Lessons are aligned with curricular and instructional standards of state and national learned bodies in social studies and art education.

Cruz, Professor of Social Science Education and Dr. Cheryl Ellerbrock, Associate Professor of Middle Grades and General Secondary Education; Shannon Peck-Bartle, M.A. and Cristina M.
