Notable Black Women.
Readings, activities, and teaching strategies for a secondary unit on black women are included in this teacher handbook. Instructional material is divided into four sections. Following a note on the use of the booklet, section 1 consists of 24 two-page biographies of black women, including Selma Burke, Lena Horne, Leontyne Price, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, and Sarah Breedlove Walker. Section 2 consists of 5 activities or games that teachers can reproduce. These are a word find puzzle, an acronym puzzle, a famous person matching game, a calculating game, and a word scramble. Answer keys are also provided. Section 3 contains five writing assignments designed to provoke thought and discussion. These focus on black women in the community, careers, an analysis of "Roots," student opinions, and dream interpretation. Teachers are provided with sample essay topics. Section 4 lists several additional activities that will involve students in linking the achievements of the notable black women studied in this unit to "hands on" or artistic activities. The unit concludes with an 18-item selected bibliography and a unit evaluation form. (LP)
