Africa South of the Sahara. Grade Twelve. [Resource Unit IV.] Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This is the fourth of seven resource units for a twelfth grade course on value conflicts and policy decisions. The topic for this unit is Africa south of the Sahara. The objectives are listed as to generalizations, skills, and values. The double-page format relates objectives to pertinent content, teaching procedures, and instructional materials. The unit deals with the relationship of these African nations to the cold-war struggle and their historical and cultural importance for American Negroes and for all Americans. Data on Africa presents an opportunity for testing a number of concepts, such as the role of political parties in a democracy, factors for political stability, and the factors of cultural identity for a nation. The unit examines the political, social, and economic problems and systems of three different kinds of countries: independent states dominated by Africans, those dominated by white people, and colonies. An analysis is made of the attempts to obtain more cooperation among the African states, of relations of these countries with non-African countries, and of policy issues and alternatives facing the United States. The teacher's guide is SO 006 331; other units are SO 006 332-334 and SO 006 336-338. (Author/KSM)
