Classroom Activities that Address Problems Related to Desegregation and Understanding of Various Ethnic Groups at Florida A&M University.
Gadson, Melvin F.
This study was designed to ascertain the nature and extent of specific classroom activities utilized by a group of Florida A & M University faculty members to address problems associated with desegregation and understanding of various ethnic groups. Data were gathered through the administration of a continuum type questionnaire to 62 instructors. Findings indicated that professors lectured to students about desegregation and race related issues. They reported that they felt individuals should be given equal opportunities for education but they do not tend to inflate grades of ethnically different students to achieve this goal. Professors felt they are neither more lenient nor more strict when evaluating students of different ethnic backgrounds and that they set the same standards for all students regardless of ethnicity. The questionnaire and responses are appended. (Author/MK)
