Teaching Ethnic Studies in the Elementary Grades with Special Emphasis on Afro-American Studies.
Ubamadu, H. Oziri
This paper discusses how to teach ethnic studies in the elementary grades, specifically focusing on what to teach and when to teach specific subject matter. The paper attempts to show how and where in the elementary school curriculum topics on nonwhite minorities can be profitably included to give the students a balanced education. It's scope is limited to Afro American Studies and covers the kindergarten through the sixth grade. The objectives of ethnic studies in the early grades are to show the African heritage of the Afro American, his contribution to the American way of life and to world civilization. The success of any program of ethnic studies depends on school personnel (teachers, school counselors, and administrators.) How to integrate Afro American studies in traditional subjects such as history, geography, English, foreign language, science, music, home economics, and library services is discussed. Specific examples for implementation are suggested. (Author/AM)
