African Heritage Curriculum Materials. Teacher's Manual.
Museum of African Art, Washington, DC.
This guide for secondary teachers focuses on sub-Saharan (Black) African history and culture. Although the guide is intended to be used in conjunction with the audiovisual materials on African heritage produced by the Museum of African Art, it can also be used as a source of background reading for teachers and as a guide to additional teacher/student resources. The audiovisual component of the program, drawn from the Museum's Elisofon Photo Archieves on Africa, is intended to serve as a supplement to existing curricula on Africa and as a basis and motivation for related activities and projects for individual student research. This Teacher's Manual provides short background readings on the 15 major subject areas treated in the materials: physical environment, natural resources, history, government, ethnic diversity, religion and philosophy, the arts, architecture, dress, education, work, economics and trade, communication, transportation, and recreation. Also included in the manual are descriptions of and scripts from the audiovisual program component, objectives and suggested classroom activities to help teachers develop units of study around the audiovisuals, and bibliographies of books and journal articles. Although intended to be used in junior and senior high schools, these materials can be adapted to other education levels. (RM)
