Selected Bibliographies for Teaching Children about Subsaharan Africa.
Schmidt, Nancy J., Comp.
These annotated bibliographies were originally developed for in-service workshops for elementary and secondary school teachers who are teaching about Africa or interested in developing curricula about Africa. The bibliographies are quite selective. They include only materials which are current, relatively accurate and unbiased, and give an authentic and representative depiction of Africa. The following areas are covered: (1) selected sources for teaching about Africa; (2) children's books for teaching about Africa, specifically for kindergarten-grade two and grades 4-6; (3) resources for teaching sixth graders about Bushmen and West African cultures; (4) children's books and audio-visual resources for supplementing a seventh grade curriculum on Africa; (5) resources for teaching about African art, music, dance and literature; (6) African recipes for American children to cook; (7) biographies of famous African men and women; (8) materials aimed at debunking myths about Africa; (9) reference works on Africa for children; and (10) children's books on Africa published from 1973-1975.
