United States History: The Black Perspective. A Guide for Eighth Grade Social Studies.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
This guide is intended to help the teacher with the curriculum integration process. It is specifically designed to provide illustrative material and narratives as raw material for an inductive approach to the examination of the role of the Black in United States History. This guide should be seen as a tool to help implement the development of these themes in the classroom: 1) slavery and the struggle for preservation of Black cultural traditions; 2) the concepts of race and racial identity in human history; 3) racism and the past and present treatment of ethnic groups in our culture. Suggestions for use of these reading selections are included both as a placement within the 7th and 8th grade social studies courses, and to possible questions to elicity discussion. Emphasis has been placed upon the use of original source materials, particularly eyewitness accounts and expressions of the Black viewpoint. Complete bibliography of selected teacher source material. Both the reading selections and pictorial inclusions can be used for individual, small-group, or total-class consideration. This is not a student text; the type of source materials require the teacher to perform his editorial role. A projected second publication will include questions and subjects for depth study. (SBE)
