Materials and information in this quinmester curriculum guide for grades seven through nine focus on tribal living in Sub-Sahara, European influence in Africa, and the African's desire for independence. Activities are offered which stress discussion, inquiry strategies, and concept teaching on tribalism, colonialism, and nationalism in an attempt to enable students to analyze the accomplishments, customs, and existing problems in these societies. Content is related to the course goals emphasizing that students should rid themselves of negative stereotypes about Africans; recognize pre-colonial involvement and reasons for colonization by Europeans; identify and differentiate between the European colonizers and their policies and their varying cultural effects upon Africa; identify factors which gave impetus to the growth of nationalism; recognize social, economic and political problems of national development; and compare in a cross cultural approach American and African societies. A framework of broad goals, content, objectives and learning activities, and materials is outlined. (SJM)
