Carnegie-Mellon Univ., Pittsburgh, PA. Project Africa.
This teaching guide and student text for Project Africa's curriculum program, "Africa South of the Sahara," deal with how four typical contemporary African peoples acquired their present way of life: (1) the Hausa of Northern Nigeria, (2) the Kung Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert, (3) the Mech'a Galla of Ethiopa, and (4) the Kikuyu of Kenya. Techniques of classification and an inquiry-oriented teaching strategy based on a scientific approach are emphasized. The teacher's guide contains detailed lesson plans, suggestions for classroom procedure, lists of instructional aids, guides in using these aids, maps, glossaries, and student study guides. The student text contains specific background information on the peoples studied, reading lists, and newspaper selections.
