Africa South of the Sahara: A Resource Guide for Secondary School Teachers. Interim Report.
Beyer, Barry K., Ed.
Information to help educators develop a program of study about Africa south of the Sahara is presented in this guide for use with secondary school students. Appropriate objectives for a study of this region and its people are stated: the acquisition of sufficient information to make contemporary Africa intelligible, the formulation of concepts useful in organizing future information about the people and the countries, and the development of the intellectual skills of inquiry and generalization. Included are guidelines for instruction; a survey of the literature on teaching about the region; a summary of the attitudes toward Africa held by American secondary school students; an extensive annotated bibliography listing materials and audiovisual aids on curriculum development, teaching improvement, Africa south of the Sahara, West Africa, East Africa, Central Africa, Southern Africa, and specific countries; and a bibliography of recommended basic instructional materials on the region.
