Tradition and Change in Modern Morocco, An Instructional Unit Based on Film Study.
Murphy, E. Jefferson
The learning unit for grade levels 8, 9, or 10 is based upon viewing and discussing the film "Morocco: Chaoui Faces His Future." Among the learning objectives of the unit are the following: (1) to expand inquiry skills and the ability to formulate concepts, generalizations, and hypotheses; (2) to introduce the student to the interplay of forces of tradition and change in Morocco; (3) to help the student acquire knowledge about how Moroccan teen-agers serve as instruments of change, the historical forces which have helped shape Morocco, the people, and customs, the diversity of life styles, the geography, technology, economy, and the role of formal education in Morocco; (4) to help students generalize upon this information about Morocco to gain a broader understanding of North Africa, the Middle East, and the Third World. Teaching techniques used include analysis of a film, questioning techniques, and classroom discussion. This unit includes a list of learning objectives, basic information on Morocco, a general analysis of the film, instructions for using it and a series of questions with which to facilitate discussion. A bibliography of references on Morocco is also provided. (Author/RM)
