Ethnic Heritage Studies: Themes in Black African and Black American Literature. Experimental Unit.
This teaching guide emphasizes the similarity of themes in black African and black American literature and the contribution black writers have made to American literature. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The project materials are designed to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines. The objectives of this unit are to recognize common themes in black African and black American literature and to appreciate several literary selections by black American authors as representative of their contribution. Planned as a supplement for an English course, suggested time to allocate for the unit is at least two weeks. The guide includes a pretest, a posttest, and four behavioral objectives accompanied by instructional strategies and facilitating materials. These encourage defining terms, reading, discussion, and writing compositions and reports, among other activities. A bibliography of resources is appended. (Author/CK)
