Negro Literature for High School Students.
This book on Negro literature for the high school classroom briefly traces the history of Negro writers from pre-Civil War days to the present and contains listings of (1) anthologies of Negro literature, (2) works written by white writers about Negroes, (3) novels written specifically for high school students, and (4) biographies of historical and contemporary figures. Each work is annotated. The annotations include a summary of the contents, an evaluation of literary quality, and an estimate of reading level. Ways of using Negro literature in thematic units and in American literature survey courses are suggested, together with a Detroit Public Schools ninth-grade unit on Negro literature and a list of books appropriate to school libraries.
