Africa in Classical Antiquity: A Curriculum Resource.
Masciantonio, Rudolph; And Others
This curriculum resource is intended primarily to assist teachers of Latin and Greek to infuse material on Africa in classical antiquity into the curriculum at all levels. It gathers together background information on the role of Africa in classical antiquity that has not been treated in traditional classical language courses. The resource guide may form the basis for an interdisciplinary, classical humanities course on Africa in classical antiquity. Five major units include: (1) the history of Africa in classical antiquity, (2) great Africans in the Greco- Roman world, (3) racial attitudes in classical antiquity, (4) blacks in the arts of classical times, and (5) Africa in classical literature. Each chapter contains background information for the teacher, suggestions for teachers in lower and middle schools, and suggestions for teachers in upper schools. Appendixes furnish several atlases, commentary on available slide sets, and a selected bibliography. Most literary excerpts and exercises are in Latin. (RL)
