The African Diaspora: Teaching the Children.
Baltimore City Public Schools, MD. Dept. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This document sets out the details of a program of six lesson plans for teaching about Africa and the African diaspora across the world. The program seeks to enable students to: (1) associate classroom instruction with a cultural reality; (2) evaluate the social, political, cultural, and academic concerns among trans-Africans; and (3) increase proficiency skills and interests in target languages (French and Spanish). Each month of the school year focuses on a different aspect of African life and culture; among the topics are geography, family life, seasonal celebrations, and sports and leisure. A selected bibliography includes 37 references. (SG)
