Celebrate Black History Month with Odyssey. A Guide for Educators.
This guide helps teachers enhance their classroom celebrations of Black History Month. The guide cites content-rich programs available from the Odyssey Television Network. The curricula provide enrichment for classroom expeditions into heritage and culture and bring life to language arts, literature, history, and the social sciences. As a springboard to discussion and writing assignments, the programs help students delve into the past, examine the current realities, and investigate the values and key relationships of the African-American experience. The guide provides student educational objectives, and for each program, there are discussion questions, a synopsis, and a list of resources. A professional development section includes general resources in black history, books, and Web sites. (BT)
