Black History Month: A Reflection and Recognition of the African American Family. Revised.
Rogers, Robert D.; And Others
Materials for celebrating Black History Month (February, 1985) in elementary and secondary schools are included in this handbook. A chronology of notable African Americans is presented and then followed by seven sections of curriculum materials on blacks in these areas: general achievements; business; religion; politics; music; math and science; and education. Each section consists of an overview (to be used as a handout or for in-class reading); a statement of the objectives for each unit of instruction, with suggestions for tests, quizzes, and information bees as ways to assess and reinforce student learning; a list of important facts; and suggestions for instructional activities that can be assigned to students across subject areas. Supplemental resources are also provided, including lists of places to visit, resources such as libraries and organizations, and magazines, periodicals, and newspapers. (KH)
