Teaching about Frederick Douglass: A Resource Guide for Teachers of Cultural Diversity. Counterpoints: Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education. Volume 406
Sanelli, Maria, Ed.; Rodriquez, Louis, Ed.
Peter Lang New York
"Teaching about Frederick Douglass" will stimulate conversation among liberal arts and education professionals as well as inform public school teachers about the life and times of Frederick Douglass. Tension exists at many institutions of higher education between liberal arts faculties who do not completely understand the function of education professors and school of education faculties who feel that there is a misunderstanding about what a teacher candidate needs to learn before entering the teaching profession. This book facilitates conversation, addressing the liberal arts professor's concern with content and the education professor's concern with pedagogy. By providing both current scholarship and lesson plans for elementary, middle school, and secondary school classes, this book serves as a vital resource for scholars on multicultural issues and provides classroom ideas for public school teachers. Contents include: (1) Black Ink: Writing Black Power with the Words of David Walker, Ida B. Wells, and Malcolm X (Ellesia Blaque); (2) Frederick Douglass, Digital Initiatives, and the Democratization of Research (Marietta Dooley and Louis Rodriquez); (3) Literacy and Social Equity (Linda McMillan and MaryAnn O'Neil); (4) Of Swimming, Computers, and Race: Lessons Learned from the History of Swimming and the Relevance to Computing and Computer Science (Randy Kaplan); (5) Religion, Race, and American History (Meredith Holladay); (6) Frederick Douglass's Spirituality (C.
