Black Literature for High School Students.
Stanford, Barbara Dodds; Amin, Karima
An interracial team of teachers and regional consultants worked together revising this ten-year-old book on the teaching of black literature. The first section discusses black literature in terms of its discovery, tradition, and affective aspects; outlines goals and objectives for the course; presents a historical survey of black American writers; considers junior novels, short story collections, biographies, and autobiographies (historical and modern) by both black and white writers; and presents supplementary bibliographies of black literature. The second part of the book deals with classroom uses of black American literature. Included in this section are outlines for two literature units on the black experience; units on slave narratives and autobiography, poetry, and the short story; a course on Afro-American literature; and a senior elective course on black literature, for which a bibliography is included. Also included are suggestions for composition, discussion, role-playing, and games. The book contains a directory of publishers and author and title indexes. (MAI)
