Stumpff, Marcelle W.
A guide for a five-week unit on African history and culture for secondary school students is presented. Objectives are to develop an awareness of life in a multi-cultural world, specifically sub-Sahara Africa; to develop an appreciation for the richness of African history; to dispel stereotypic notions about Africa; to develop a clearer understanding of our own society; and to provide an understanding of why people respond to their environment. Topics include African cities; geography; history to 1500; building African nations after 1500; literature, art, and music of Africa; and politics, economy, change, and apartheid in modern Africa. Daily lesson plans are briefly outlined and a list of textual materials is provided. (KC)
