The Significance of Black Literature in the Language Arts Program of a Predominantly Black Junior High School.
Hord, Helen McConnell
The teaching of black literature as a means of helping black students achieve academic success in a predominantly black junior high school is the focus of this study. Chapter one presents the argument for the study--language arts teachers should recognize the importance black literature can have not only in fostering reading and writing skills but also in helping the student to modify his self-image and shape his attitudes toward others. Chapter two presents a survey of black literature that can be used at the junior high school level. Chapter three applies black literature to the language arts curriculum in three instructional units (cultural, interdisciplinary, and literary) prepared from works by black American authors. Chapter four summarizes the success of these units, discusses the limitations of the study, and makes suggestions for further research. (Author/DI)
