Halliburton, Warren J.; Katz, William Loren
Patterned after traditional curricula currently used in our nation's schools, this syllabus integrates into the course of study the contributions of Afro-Americans and other minorities to our common heritage and aims for the preparation of good citizens. Each unit of this 36-38 week course is offered as a basis for preparing daily lesson plans and includes: 1) content information; 2) a conceptual framework; 3) an annotated bibliography for teachers and students; 4) audiovisual materials; and, 5) appropriate classroom activity. Also included is a basic concept outline on race, prejudice and discrimination which states the belief that attitudes and behavior can be influences through exposure to a coherent and structured body of information.
