Africa and Asia, Loyalties in Conflict: A Conceptual Approach.
Wright, J. Zeb
The work is a 9-11 week teaching unit on the theme of loyalties and the resolution of conflicts among these loyalties within the societies of Asian and African peoples. The unit is the outcome of a pilot study of the United States Office of Education to develop world culture courses for the West Virginia secondary schools. Emphasis is on the conceptual approach of the new social studies. Eleven areas of loyalty are outlined for both the Asian and the African and then case studies of individual conflicts of citizens of Nigeria, India, Kenya, and Indonesia are presented to describe the problems and possible solutions of the conflicts of loyalties. Suggested materials and classroom activities are given for each case study. Activities for the conclusion of each case study are given to delineate the problems of loyalty to oneself as a device to illustrate the universality of human problems. A three page bibliography of works of a historical and anthropological nature is provided. (CWB)
