A Guide for Teaching the Contributions of the Negro Author to American Literature.
Simon, Eugene E.
This curriculum guide for grade 11 was written to provide direction for teachers in helping students understand how Negro literature reflects its historical background, in integrating Black literature into the English curriculum, in teaching students literary structure, and in comparing and contrasting Negro themes with othr themes in American literature. Brief outlines are provided for four literary periods: (1) the cry for freedom (1619-1865), (2) the period of controversy and search for identity (1865-1915), (3) the Negro Renaissance (1915-1940), and (4) the struggle for equality (1915-1968). The section covering the Negro Renaissance provides a discussion of the contributions made during that period in the fields of the short story, the essay, the novel, poetry, drama, biography, and autobiography. A selected bibliography of Negro literature includes works in all these genres as well as works on American Negro music. (DD)
