Media for Teaching Afro-American Studies. IRCD Bulletin, Volume 6, Numbers 1 and 2.
This issue of the IRCD Bulletin is devoted to media and media resources for teaching Afro-American studies. The imperative need for the wide usage of audio-visual equipment and materials is stressed in the context of reported lack of interest shown by teachers in the utilization of media resources. The setting up of a Media Center on Ethnic Studies as part of the ERIC-IRCD program, housing of this collection in the Teachers College library, and the findings of evaluations of these media units by black people (graduate students and community representatives) are dealt with. In general, those units consisting of coordinated filmstrips with records were considered more effective than either the filmstrips alone or with records alone. The Bulletin also contains reviews of media resources listed and arranged according to the following categories: Africa, History, People, and General. Those media resources ordered by the Center but not reviewed here are appended. (RJ)
