Planning and Executing a Summer Workshop in American Literature of Minority Groups.
Mott, Sara L.
The planning and implementation of a summer workshop in American literature of minority groups for a small denominational college is described in this paper. Four teachers provided through the National American Studies Faculty conducted week-long seminars on the literature of Blacks, Native Americans, Chicanos, and Asian Americans. An additional benefit of the course was the inclusion of other forms of ethnic art as topics of study. In conjunction with the daily classes, a public lecture held one evening a week was provided for class members, other students, faculty, and other interested community members. Although enrollment in the workshop was small, evaluation of the program was generally favorable. Special strengths included the development of reading lists, suggestions for non-book materials, efficient utilization of specialists in each area of minority literature, and good class discussions.
