The Negro in United States History. A Resource Guide (Tentative) for Grades 7 and 8.
Boston Public Schools, MA.
This resource guide has been developed by a curriculum team of Boston teachers and the staff of the Lincoln Filene Center at Tufts University to provide the social studies teacher with materials suitable for delineating the role of the Black man and the meaning of the Black experience in United States History. The Black experience is woven into the mainstream of American History and is presented within the traditionally organized chronological United States History curriculum throughout the school year. The curriculum provides for considerable student participation in the teaching-learning process and is concerned with both the cognitive and the affective domains of Black history. The units are divided into four parts: 1) Basic Observations: to provide the teacher with insights into the most important concepts and standard historical interpretation in each period from the pre-Revolutionary period to the present; 2) Documentary Material: to supplement school texts, and to include content questions and discussion questions to supplement standard lessons; 3) Related Learning Activities: a medium to be used to enrich the curriculum and increase student involvement; and 4) Suggested Readings: a research tool for independent study. This guide is provisional in nature. (SBE)
