Small-Scale Industries in Kenya: A Case Study of Economic Development. Toward a Better World Series, Learning Kit No. 3.
Baldwin, Harriet; Ross-Larson, Bruce, Ed.
This World Bank (Washington, D.C.) kit is a case study designed to introduce secondary school social studies students to a project in Kenya established to strengthen small-scale industries. The kit contains a pamphlet, a booklet, a sound filmstrip, and a teacher's guide. The pamphlet, "Economic Summary: Kenya," points out the severe problems Kenya faces in raising standards of living. The booklet, "Small-Scale Industries in Kenya," examines Kenya Industrial Estates, Limited (KIE), a government-owned company set up to assist small-scale industries. It tells the story of a carpenter who wants to expand his furniture business, and of the people who help him. The important role that small-scale industries play in the process of improving living conditions is illustrated. The filmstrip, "Small-Scale Industries in Kenya," reviews the contents of the booklet. The teacher's guide contains: (1) objectives for learning; (2) 8 lesson plans; (3) the filmstrip; and (4) 12 reproducible student worksheets, including one test. Maps, tables, and black and white photographs are included. (JB)
