Portraits: The Literature of Minorities: An Annotated Bibliography of Literature by and about Four Ethnic Groups in the United States for Grades 7-12.
Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools, CA.
Intended to aid the secondary school teacher in recommending appropriate works to students, this annotated bibliography by and about black Americans, North American Indians, Mexican Americans, and Asian Americans gives detailed information and evaluations on themes, literary quality, and intellectual and emotional levels of materials. The bibliography, based on the standards of the booklist "We Build Together," is organized according to literary types--novels, short stories, poetry, drama, folk tales and legends, biographies, autobiographies, essays, letters, speeches, and anthologies--with every selection intended to foster the development of better self-concepts for minority group students and to contribute to a greater understanding for majority culture students. Availability of paperback editions is noted. A separate bibliography for teachers and suggestions for thematic units are included. (MF)
