The document, which summarizes Institute activities from July 26 to August 6, 1971, begins with an overview, emphasizing characteristics of the Institute participants. A background section focuses on the status of American, urban-dwelling blacks, the population group with which the teachers will be working. Eleven speeches are presented to familiarize participants with the relationships between color and sex and income, schooling, and employment, and to acquaint them with community resources, the importance of the political process, and the ways reading and mathematical skills can assist students in their social and economic lives. The texts of these speeches constitute the main and largest portion of the document. A list of books, magazines, articles, government publications, and bibliographies distributed at the Institute are listed. The participant evaluation of the Institute, three follow-up activities reports, a list of participants, and the Institute program are also included. (AG)
