“Brief, easily understandable essays on Florida’s black history…an excellent introduction to the subject.”
This teachers’ manual is meant to accompany the text entitled African Americans in Florida. The manual includes, for each chapter, (1) the key terms that are bold-faced in the text and defined in the glossary, (2) research questions for possible further work, (3) discussion topics for the classroom, and (4) a project geared to the particular chapter. The text is based on the recommendations put forth by the Study Commission on African American History in Florida, which was established by the Florida Legislature in 1990. The book integrates suggestions made by this and other educational commissions, by, for example, placing an emphasis on the role that history and geography have played in the story of African Americans of Florida. Teachers might want to use the text as a supplemental resource, not only in Black History Month, but throughout the school year.
