African Americans in Science, Mathematics, Medicine, and Invention, Curriculum Guide. A Multicultural Curriculum.
Rochester City School District, NY.
"The Contributions of African Americans to Science, Medicine, and Invention" is a 39-minute videotape developed for elementary and middle school students and staff. The video, the script, and the curriculum guide in this kit provide significant historical information that is not often available. The video uses student actors to stress the economic and social impact of many contributions made by Africans and African Americans in science, medicine, and invention. Curriculum activities, which are both teacher-and student-directed, use social studies, science, language arts, and mathematics skills to explore other topics introduced by the video. Four sets of task cards and two sets of puzzle cards, correlated to each section of the video; and a list of 73 sources for additional reading, marked for the appropriate age group, are included.
