Social Studies Course III. Sub-Saharan Africa: A Cultural Area. Teacher's Manual and Readings.
Leppert, Ella C.; Johnson, Ellen
The material in the Course III, Unit I, secondary teacher's manual builds upon earlier sequential courses and provides a foundation for the study of two other cultural areas. Objectives are for students to broaden their cultural understanding and awareness emphasizing main ideas about Africa. Students will analyze why a tremendous regional diversity exists in Africa, and why Africa is both a continent of stability and a continent of change. Focus is upon students sharpening their cognitive structure of knowledge, concepts, generalizations, and skills, and also on broadening their affective structure of values. The manual is arranged by five sections -- the physical environment, social life, economic life, political life, and other aspects of African life. A variety of data on African people is provided including a number of selected readings and poems written by African writers. A student manual is incorporated into each section of the guide. Related documents are: ED 048 062, SO 003 169 through SO 003 175, SO 003 515, and SO 003 517. (Author/SJM)
