African Outreach Workshop 1974.
Schmidt, Nancy J.
This report discusses the 1974 African Outreach Workshop planned and coordinated by the African Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Its major aim was to assist teachers in developing curriculum units on African using materials available in their local community. A second aim was for the African Studies Program to serve the community outside the University by making available accurate and comprehensive knowledge on Africa and Africans. Part 1 of the report discusses the organization of the workshop and its general impact during the following school year. Part 2 presents curriculum materials developed for three schools during the workshop, and editorial comments on the implementation of the curricula during the period of the workshop and the following year. Sample materials include the following: (a) Africa: Operation Exposure, A Mini-Unit; (b) African Masks; An Art Unit; (c) A Unit on African Culture for Grades 2 and 4; (d) Sixth Grade Africa Unit Related to the Taba Curriculum; and (e) A Curriculum Outline for Studying About Africa in Elementary Schools. (Appendixes listing workshop participants and materials distributed are included.) (Author/JS)
