9781598847512: Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom

It is important that the school curriculae be representative of the diversity of the American student population. Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom is designed to help teachers and librarians achieve that goal. The book recommends and annotates more than 200 titles that touch on African American life from slavery through the present time, most of them by black authors, and many of them winners of the Coretta Scott King, Caldecott, and/or Newbery awards.

This guide offers cross-curricular lesson plans for grades K–12. Each chapter identifies areas in which instructional attention is most needed to help students develop a greater appreciation for diversity, perseverance, and ethnicity. Examples and ideas for activities are offered to reinforce related concepts. With this book, teachers and librarians will be better able to motivate and inform, helping students discover the richness of African American culture now and through time.

Book Description:

From Frederick Douglass to Barack Obama, African Americans have made enormous—often-unheralded—contributions to American society and culture. One of the ways for students to learn about and appreciate those contributions is through the literature that explores and celebrates them. Now there is an easy way to choose and utilize the best books for that purpose.
