Teaching Black; An Evaluation of Methods and Resources.
Stanford Univ., CA. Multi-Ethnic Education Resources Center.
Methods and resources available for teaching about black culture and history in Africa and America are evaluated. An introductory essay, "The Black Experience: A Historical Overview," emphasizes aspects of black history which most black scholars deem relevant for correcting error and distortion, filling gaps of knowledge, and helping black youth establish their identity. Curriculum packages developed by school districts were evaluated according to 1) whether their assumptions were based on African values and perspectives, 2) whether they destroyed stereotypes held by non-black students, and 3) whether they provided positive identity reinforcements for black students. Of 236 packages evaluated, 40 are recommended for use and are described here. They are arranged according to classroom type (all black, all white, mixed) and by grade level (K-4, 5-8, 9-12). The packages are all available on microfiche. An annotated list of books, periodicals, and films which can be used as resources is included. (JK)
