Teaching Black History for Social Change.
Banks, James A.
In this paper, the author offers a rationale for Black Studies programs for the reader's consideration, attempts to resolve the question, "Black History for what?" and illustrates how Black History can be taught as an integral part of a modern social studies curriculum which is spiral, conceptual, and interdisciplinary, and which emphasizes decision-making and social action skills. Black History should help students develop the ability to make reflective decisions so that they can resolve personal problems and shape public policy by participating in intelligent social action; the goal of Black History should be to help students become effective change agents.
