Energy Crisis: Libya's and Nigeria's Role. Resource Packet.
African-American Inst., New York, NY. School Services Div.
This resource packet contains practical suggestions and resource materials to help secondary teachers teach about Libya's and Nigeria's roles in the energy crisis. Students become acquainted with the governments and cultures of the two countries, examine their social problems, and learn how the Libyan and Nigerian governments are using money from oil sales to help their people. The classroom materials selected for the packet provide a different point of view--that of the Libyans and Nigerians themselves. The authors want to make students aware that U.S. viewpoints are not always the only or the "right" ones. By using these materials, students will become more critical of their own opinions and more questioning of "facts" as reported in the news media. Students view 16mm films, read journal articles and books, participate in classroom discussions, write to oil companies, and do independent research. The packet includes (1) two select annotated bibliographies of classroom and teacher materials on Libya and Nigeria; (2) two lesson plans, "The Women of Libya" and "How Does a Government Use Its Resources to Bring Maximum Gain to Its Citizens?"; and (3) suggestions on how to use these resource materials and lesson plans in the classroom.
