The Negro in the Social Studies Curriculum.
Madison Public Schools, WI. Dept. of Curriculum Development.
Instructional episodes are developed in this guide to illustrate focus and strategies for teaching Negro history K-12. Each episode reflects the anticipated social and intellectual maturity of the pupil at the grade level selected. Materials for primary levels stress human interaction within society; materials and activities chosen for grades 5, 8, and 9 begin to develop the distinction between ideal and real life; secondary school samples capitalize upon the emphasis of the elementary program and focus upon increasing precision of critical thinking as well as accuracy of knowledge. The secondary episodes are for U.S. history since 1929 in grade 11 and a sociology course in grade 12. In all episodes teacher and students try to determine if their attitudes have changed as a result of the study. Activities are adapted to local and state history and conditions. Student materials, quizzes, teaching strategies, and bibliographies are included in some episodes. (Author/VW)
