A Black Curriculum for Early Childhood Education: Teaching Units.
Spodek, Bernard; And Others
Teaching units are presented for a black curriculum in early childhood education dealing with Africa and its children, language experiences and the black media, Afro-American arts, and social studies. Each unit is first discussed in general in regard to goals and content, and then each is broken down into specific objectives, content outline, teaching procedures, and materials. The units are directed at urban children and emphasize cultural heritage and self-awareness. A final resource unit provides the teacher and educator with a qualitative listing of materials about blacks, giving information on what is available for use with young children, and how and where to secure the materials. The resources include teachers' references, filmstrips and slides, films, records, pictures and posters, children's literature (picture, prose, and poetry), sources of materials, and annotated bibliographies.
