Dear Bunki,

The Multicultural Art Print Series or MAPS, distributed by Crystal
Productions, has sets of prints on just your monthly subjects - in
addition, on the back of each of the prints are suggested activities,
including production, and these activities are broken down into grade
levels (including Middle School). The sets include: Women Artists of the
Americas, Arts of India, Mexican American Art, Selected American Indian
Artifacts, African American Art, and Pacific Asian Art. Each set includes
five large, laminated and fully explicated prints, and eachsset sells for
$30. Suggest to your principal that he buy you the resources with which to
teach the multicultural units. If you order all six sets, the total price
is $148.00/

Call 1-800-255-8629 for your own copy of the Crystal Productions Catalogue.
Good luck!!

Sincerely,
