Teacher's Guide for Afro-American History.
Zimmermann, Matilde J.
This manual is designed to help the non-specialist cope with the existing body of material on Afro-American studies and establish guidelines for evaluating new resources as they appear. No attempt is made to recommend teaching methods or activities, but the author urges supplementation of elementary and secondary social studies courses and materials, most of which overlook or distort the role of blacks in American history. The first part of the manual, Survey of Afro-American History, is divided into 16 historical periods paralleling similar divisions in American history courses, e.g.: The African Past; Black Power During the Reconstruction Period; Depression and the New Deal; Black Nationalism. Each section surveys its period with an emphasis on Afro-Americans, and notes three to five related specialized works. The second part comprises a 40-page topical bibliography to aid teachers and librarians in adding to their Afro-American studies materials. It covers bibliographies, teacher guides, biographies, general histories and documentary collections, African history and culture, contemporary issues, black art, children's books, newspapers and periodicals, films and filmsetips, sound recordings, and organizations and publishers.
