Minorities in America: Pilot Units for a Senior High School Elective Course.
Edelman, Marshall; And Others
This publication includes sample units designed for use in the senior high school elective course, minorities in America. Written during the summer of 1969, it is designed to suggest possible organizations, materials, and activities that will assist the classroom teacher in handling a diversified, complex course. The units are pilots or models, descriptive rather than prescriptive, and are designed to encourage the teacher to develop his own course with other units and materials. Statements of content are presented under each unit, followed by case studies, student activities, and assignments related to various curriculum project materials. The six units are: The Multi-Ethnic Society; Minority Experience in America; Violence in America; Protest; Life in the Ghetto; and, The Family. (Author/DJB)
