The Development and Evaluation of a Black Literature Workshop Designed to Sensitize Teachers to the "Black American Experience."
Sistrunk, Albertha
The purpose of this study was to develop, conduct, and evaluate a black literature workshop designed to sensitize teachers to the black American experience. The developed workshop study utilized the major components of an educational workshop and also emphasized 40 preconstructed group activities designed from black literary selections and given the most consideration for development and evaluation. The workshop, conducted at Boston University, was held for nine days during the first summer term of 1975 and included seventeen participants who were involved with the teaching of English in th New England area. Workshop success was evaluated in terms of cognitive and affective outcomes of the experience, with primary consideration given to the personal reactions and feelings of participants. As a result of this study, a resource manual for conducting future black literature workshops was developed, containing all the preconstructed group activities, information sheets, individual assignments, and resource bibliographies. Guidelines were also drawn up to aid the overall effectiveness of future black literature workshops of a similar nature. (Author/JM)
