Afro-American Experience Program, June 1960-May 1970. An Evaluation Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC.
This is the evaluation report of the Afro-American Experience Program which consisted of a summer institute for secondary school teachers, and a follow-up academic year in Washington, D.C. high schools. The program sought to provide formal instruction in teaching the black experience to teachers designated to conduct classes in Negro history or black literature. University teacher education programs had failed to meet the needs of these teachers. The evaluation of this project sought to determine the attitudes of the participants toward the program as a whole. Evaluation showed that the program did achieve its goals. Teachers also reported positive responses to the materials by students, including the enhancement of self-identity. Recommendations included increased funding and continuation and expansion of the program. (Author/DM)
