Economic Development and Social Change: Four Case Studies from Africa. Resource Packet.
African-American Inst., New York, NY. School Services Div.
Using these four case studies, secondary teachers can help students learn about economic development and social change in Tanzania, Egypt, Nigeria, and South Africa. The case study presentation is built around the following five questions: (1) what are the major problems facing this particular developing country; (2) which problems should (do) get priority; (3) how is the leadership in this developing country going about solving the problems; (4) what are the consequences of these development strategies; and (5) what are the costs of development; can these be predicted and provided for? Students view 16mm films; read speeches, journal articles, and short selections; and participate in classroom discussions. For each case study, print and nonprint instructional materials which provide information on the five questions listed above are cited. A lesson plan that includes a short reading selection and questions with which to stimulate classroom discussion is also provided on each of the four countries. (Author/RM)
