The Negro in Modern American History Textbooks: A Study of the Negro in Selected Junior and Senior High History Textbooks as of September, 1966. Curricular Viewpoints Series.
The treatment of the Negro in junior and senior high school history texts is analyzed in a fairly extensive description of 13 widely used books. The document calls attention to the earlier evaluation made by historians of the texts used in the California schools (see ED 017586) and includes an excerpt from that report. In this review the senior high school text entitled "The Rise of the American Nation" by Todd and Curti is ranked the most satisfactory for its discussion of the Negro in American history. It is also said to be the largest selling high school text in the nation. (NH)
