Final Report of the Afro-American Studies & African Studies Summer Institute for College Teachers.
Penn, Nolan; Miracle, Marvin P.
The summer institute program was designed to provide basic training in Afro-American and African studies for teachers from midwestern colleges and universities to meet the severe teacher shortage in these subjects. Content knowledge and attitudes were emphasized more than teaching skills. The 40 participants were instructed in Afro-American and African studies and were assisted in building their own programs of study. They were also made aware of available teaching resources, such as bibliographies, audio-visual materials and consultants. Characteristics of the participants and their evaluations are included in this report. (Author/CS)
