From Jumpstreet: Television and the Humanities. A Workshop on Multicultural Education in Secondary Schools.
Levine, Toby H.; Standifer, James A.
This workshop manual will help coordinators train secondary teachers to use "From Jumpstreet: A Story of Black Music," a series of 13 half-hour television programs. The colorful and rhythmic series explores the black musical heritage from its African roots to its wide influence in modern American music. Each program of the series features performances and discussion by talented contemporary entertainers, plus film clips and still photo sequences of famous black performers of the past. The program can be used in language arts, history, and humanities courses. This manual is designed to serve two purposes: (1) to provide teacher trainers with a complete training manual; and (2) to provide workshop participants with copies of all handouts that will be used at the workshop, as well as with sufficient background information on workshop planning to encourage their implementation of additional workshops in their local communities. There are three major sections. The first contains hints for workshop faculty planning. The second contains workshop agendas and activities. Information provided for each activity includes an introduction, objectives, materials needed, time needed, and procedures. The third section of the manual contains handouts, the background readings, and worksheets that are used in various activities. They may be used with workshop participants directly or by trainers as a means of preparing a short presentation. (RM)
