"These critical essays, written specifically for instructors in literature courses, focus on longer works of prose in each of the four major ethnic literatures of the United States: Native American, Mexican American, Asian American, and African American. Each essay is accompanied by bibliographies and pedagogical strategies for helping students appreciate texts from a variety of cultures and traditions." "Instructors of broad survey courses will find this text invaluable as will those planning more specialized courses in the novel, short story, or autobiography. The authors included are ones whose works are often taught but about whom little critical comment is yet available. Teaching American Ethnic Literatures contributes to the scholarship on ethnic writing in the United States and to the effort to apply that scholarship to classroom teaching."--BOOK JACKET

American Ethnic Literatures. Native American, African American, Chicano/atino, and Asian American Writers and Their Backgrounds. an Annotated Bibliography. Magill Bibliographies by David R Peck( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This volume is a serious effort to provide a guide to the range of creative and scholarly work in the four major American ethnic literatures. The burst in creative energy among Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans has made it difficult for teachers to keep up with the primary literature, let alone the growing body of criticism. The book gives brief narrative histories of the ethnic literatures, provides annotations to the best works of history, presents annotated bibliographies of the best books of criticism, and lists the major works of the primary literature. The first four-chapter unit gives teachers a background for teaching American ethnic literature and lists bibliographies on ethnic history and immigration in general, as well as by ethnic group. The second, and longer, unit describes the literatures, giving a brief narrative history of the literature, a selected reading list of primary works, and an annotated bibliography of the best criticism, grouped by genre.
