Palmeri, Anthony J. (1993). Orality, Literacy, and Malcolm X. In his autobiography, Malcolm X wrote that he did not become fully literate until he went to prison in the 1940s. Literacy profoundly changed Malcolm's life–his progression from street talker, to spokesman for the Nation of Islam, to independent spokesman for human rights, is related to changes in his consciousness brought on by literacy. When he lived on the streets of New York, hustling for a living, Malcolm relied on oral communication. One scholar argues that part of the resistance to white racism and domination was the creation by Blacks of a fast-paced, improvisational language that contrasted sharply with the passive stereotyping of the tongue-tied "sambo." Malcolm never lost his "street talker" skills, but literacy was central to his later development. In prison, he became frustrated with his inability to read or write well, and he began to take advantage of the prison library. As Malcolm read and discovered the enormous injustices done to Blacks, and the attempts made to explain those injustices away, the level of dissonance he experienced became unbearable. The writings and teachings of Elijah Muhammad served to satisfy Malcolm's literate need for closure. He became a convert to Muhammad's version of Islam, a decision that had monumental consequences for his thought and lifestyle. What happened, essentially, is that Malcolm's experience with literacy opened his mind in many respects, but also closed it by leading him to devalue his earlier life. For teachers, the lesson is that the mind controlled by writing technology has limitations, as does the mind without exposure to writing.

Davis, Robert T.; Towe, Princess (1992). Multiculturalism, Stereotypes, and Critical Thinking: Breaking Down Barriers among Urban and Rural High School Students. Four teachers, two from a rural high school and two from an urban one, spent a year trying to get students to examine similarities and differences between the two schools. The exchange program involved students from Malcolm X Shabazz High School of Newark, New Jersey and a group from rural New Jersey's Hunterdon Central High. Small groups of students paid visits to each other's schools. The theme for the first year of the project was "equity." Students from both schools took part in small group discussions during the visits, then returned to the large group to share reactions. The students discovered that they shared attitudes about some subjects (single parent households, working women) and began to question stereotypes about each other. Such activities help students learn to trust, to work together to solve problems, and to develop critical thinking skills. At the conclusion of the program, plans were underway to continue and expand it.   [More]  Descriptors: Critical Thinking, Cultural Awareness, Cultural Pluralism, Discussion (Teaching Technique)

Brooks, Robert D.; Scheidel, Thomas M. (1968). Speech as Process: A Case Study, Speech Monographs. In order to test the internal evaluative processes and not merely the final reactions of an audience to a speaker, 97 Caucasian college students expressed their attitudes toward Malcolm X while listening to a 25-minute tape-recorded speech by him. Eight 30-second silent intervals at natural pauses in the speech gave the students time to respond during the stimulus speech. The subjects completed semantic-differential pre- and post-tests on Malcolm X. Two control groups responded only to the pre- and post-tests–group A without hearing the speech, group B hearing it uninterrupted. Eight scaled evaluative sets were used to determine attitude toward the speaker (i.e., reputable, kind, educated, selfish). Although post-test results for the experimental group and control group B were remarkably similar (thus negating the possibility of experimental disruptive effects), results obtained from the experimental group during the speech's eight intervals revealed significant shifts in the group's attitude toward the speaker. Informed statements can be made about when changes occurred, at what rate, and in relationship to what speech content. It was concluded that this process analysis of communication presents a fuller, truer description of audience reactions than the traditional static methods of evaluation.   [More]  Descriptors: Affective Behavior, Attitude Change, Attitude Measures, Attitudes

Younger, Jan J.; Meussling, Vonne (1989). Contemporary Oratory: A Lens for Our Time.

Williams, Richard W. (1977). The Development of a Plan for the Implementation of a Faculty Development Program at Malcolm X College. A two-part faculty development plan for Malcolm X College (Illinois) and a discussion of its development are presented. Phase One of the plan details the development of an informal, inter-disciplinary resource team to assist the faculty in identifying and solving instructional problems through (a) accepting and diagnosing the problem, (b) defining goals and roles, (c) eliminating problems and identifying resources, (d) determining and selecting possible solutions, and (e) implementing and evaluating the selected decision. Phase Two of the plan details the development of programs and activities that the administration should provide for the faculty in terms of orientation, in-house seminars and workshops, a professional library, college visitations, and educational project grants.  A review of related literature is included and indicates that low faculty turnover and reduced mobility are two reasons for faculty development, effective programs must be holistic, and program goals should reflect those goals of the faculty involved.
