Teachers' Guide to American Negro History.
Katz, William Loren
This book seeks to place the Negro in appropriate places in the American history curriculum, unit by unit of study. Its main categories are those of typical American history courses bought in secondary schools, and not those of "Negro history"; its purpose is to offer a framework for the full-scale integration of Negro contributions into the existing American history course of study. Chapters of the book encompass: (1) the integrated curriculum and the teacher; (2) new materials in the classroom, including a basic teacher reference library, teaching goals, daily planning, committee work and dramatization, use of original source materials, outside reading, audiovisual aids, special events such as trips, and evaluation procedures; (3) Major units in American Negro history, including a bibliography of Africa and the slave trade, colonization of the New World, birth and growth of a new nation, the Westward movement, the South during slavery, development of the free North, the Civil War, Reconstruction, growth of industry and labor, the last frontier of farmers and cowboys, reform and progress era, World War I, the Depression and the New Deal, World War II and after, and the Civil Rights Revolution; (4) sources of inexpensive or free materials; and, (5) reading lists on race, and lists of libraries and museums of Negro history.
