Afro-American History; An Elective One Semester Course.
Asher, Frank L.
The objectives, methods, strategies, content, and resources utilized in this high school course are described in this report. A chronological, topical, interdisciplinary approach is taken toward subject matter ranging from African Antecedents, through The Civil War and Reconstruction, to The Black Revolution. In addition to the general aims of social studies education, such as critical thinking, objectivity, and democratic values, this course is intended to provide an understanding and appreciation of the role of black people in American development. Such strategies as discovery learning, problem solving, active student participation in group and individual projects are employed in achieving these objectives. A typical unit lists reference works, text assignments, suggestions for supplemental reading, audiovisual material, outline of content, and questions for discussion which stress inductive methods and encourage the student to relate generalizations to contemporary social phenomena.
