Integrating Black Materials Into the High School Curriculum. Report on the Alabama Center for Higher Education's 1974 Summer Ethnic Heritage Studies Institute for High School Teachers of Social Studies and Humanities.
Alabama Center for Higher Education, Birmingham.
As part of an Office of Education Title IX Ethnic Heritage Studies Grant (1974), this document presents the report on integrating black materials into the high school curriculum. Objectives of the ethnic studies project were to (1) continue the ongoing statewide oral history project, (2) implement a pilot program or demonstration project on the incorporation of existing relevant Afro-American materials into the current instructional program in social studies and humanities, (3) disseminate the instructional materials to participating schools for classroom use and evaluation, (4) provide inservice training for a pilot group of 15 high school teachers, and (5) develop instructional units and media materials dealing with black awareness. The document includes the agenda and guidelines from the teacher workshop for incorporating black literature in the high school curriculum, as well as a selective bibliography of appropriate materials. Following the report are eight instructional units which were developed to incorporate black materials into United States government and American history courses, American literature, speech and choral reading, and poetry and biography courses. The units include philosophy, goals, objectives, outline of course, appropriate materials, and activities. (Author/JR)
