Negro History and Culture.
Dade County Board of Public Instruction, Miami, FL.
This experimental curriculum guide is intended as an instructional resource for those secondary school social studies teachers who are either conducting the Negro History and Culture course or working to integrate existing curriculum in other social studies disciplines. The instruction units are specifically designed for two purposes: 1) to support a one-semester, half-credit elective course; 2) to provide instructional material to develop a greater awareness of the contributions of the Negro people in the United States in order to comprehend the nature of the American society today. There are six units: Race and Culture, African Heritage, The Legacy of Slavery, Striving for Freedom, 20th Century Struggle for Civil and Human Rights, and The Negro Movement: Freedom Now. Each unit has a consistent organization: 1) instructional intent; 2) synopsis of material; 3) outline of important concepts; 4) review of content with additional sources of information for the teacher; 5) a worksheet, in chart form, containing teaching strategy, encompassing aims, goals, and methodology as a foundation for additional planning or learning activities, inquiry and problem solving experiences, and student assessment in terms of the behavioral objectives; and, 6) listing of vocabulary words, teacher reference books and materials, and multimedia instructional materials.
