Sugar Cane: A Bitter-Sweet Legacy. A Study of the Disappearing African-American Worker on the Sugar Cane Plantations in Southern Louisiana.
Jones, John A., Jr.; And Others
This resource/study guide is designed to accompany the instructional video, "Sugar Cane: A Bitter-Sweet Legacy," which explores the significance of cultivating, harvesting, and refining sugar cane. It is also a brief study of the disappearing African-American workers on the sugar cane plantations in southern Louisiana. Seven main ideas are captured in the film, which takes an interdisciplinary approach by incorporating objectives and activities from social studies, science, mathematics, language arts, art, music, and vocational education. The guide also includes sections dealing with the main ideas, the historical background, narration script for the video, a timeline, content outline, a glossary, and a 32-item bibliography. An appendix features maps, puzzles, a pre- and post-test (and answers), and a number of poems. (DB)
