Culturally Yours From Africa to the Americas. A Resource Unit for the Study of Black History.
Catholic Board of Education, Diocese of Cleveland, OH.
A framework of the historical development of African Americans is provided in these social studies units designed for secondary students. The purpose of the guide is to assist teachers in presenting an unbiased view of American history which includes the rich cultural heritage of Africa, thereby giving students an understanding of the significance of black history, of minority groups as a vital, contributing component of a pluralistic society, and of the principles of a democratic society. It is hoped that students not only will gain insight into historical and sociological background but also will understand minority group problems and frustrations. An interdisciplinary approach is emphasized and critical thinking skills stressed in the units, along with the learning activities provided. Eight units intended to be integrated into a United States history course may be taught as a semester course, or each unit may be taught independently. The scope of the units is broad, extending from the early West African States during the Pre-Christian era up to present day history in the final unit. Each unit includes an outline of generalizations to be developed, instructional objectives, subject matter, learning activities, and resource materials. A recommended list of audio-visual materials is included. (SJM)
