Nigeria: Teaching Plans and Materials for Secondary Teachers and Students.
Andriot, Karen; And Others
This publication contains teacher developed units of study to teach secondary students about Nigerian history, government, geography, industry, and family life. The units are: Sources of Historical Information; History of Benin; Constitutions; Nigeria and the United States; Elections in Nigeria; Nigerian Diplomacy; and Family in Nigeria. Background information for the teacher and many student materials such as short readings, primary source selections, and maps are provided in the publication. However, to implement a few of the units' activities teachers must have access to commercially available print materials and media. Some examples of the activities in which students are involved follow. Students compare the Fundamental Rights section of the Nigerian Constitution with the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. Students read and discuss an excerpt from "The African Past" by Basil Davidson. Many activities require students to utilize data collected from various primary sources to reconstruct certain periods of history and the social aspects of those periods. One activity involves students in role playing the four major political parties of Nigeria. Another simulation provides students with a view of the problems and opportunities which Nigeria has in international relations. Family life is studied through readings and role playing. Students also view and discuss films and filmstrips. (Author/RM)
