Working with Special Education student in grades 9 - 12, I am always in search of new ideas to use with them. In writing this unit, it is my purpose to interest, motivate and stimulate my students in what they are learning.
In writing this unit, I want to provide students with an integrated examination of black politics and American politics at the National, State and Local levels of the political system. I want to show the relationship between black politics and American National government and politics.
I will examine the character, magnitude and impact of black politics from the early 1800’s to the present day. The following questions will be askedare blacks becoming and important part of the institutions of American National government and politics? What are the results of blacks’ emphasis on political participation as the primary strategy for group enhancement?
The 1800’s to the present day brought about a dramatic change for African Americans. Students will be able to read, research and learn important facts that help to bring about the African American role in government and politics.
