Seventh Grade Social Studies Units and Student Readings.

Two main ideas form the focus of this interdisciplinary unit: (1) Sub-Sahara Africa is a diverse geographic region with a little known but rich historical tradition; and (2) Sub-Sahara Africa has thrown off colonial rule and is developing modern societies that play an important role in the world today. The teaching guide and reading materials which comprise this document are both divided between these two ideas. Each section of the teaching guide includes subgeneralizations, suggestions of diverse instructional materials, and detailed guides for learning experiences. (Geography, ancient and modern history, politics, and culture are among the many facets of Africa covered in this unit.) See SO 000 584 for a listing of related documents. (JLB)
