The Africa File: Notes, Quotes, and Questions about Africa and Development.
This document examines development efforts in Africa. While discussing issues in an African context, the document challenges students to consider a wider, global context. Africa, with its history of colonialism, its fragile soil, its expanding population, its struggle to provide people with the basic means of existence, illustrates very starkly the development problems and choices that face the world. Each of the document's parts include a table of contents, student background information, student activities, and teacher notes. The document is designed as a potpourri of resources for teachers. Individual units stand on their own, and teachers can select the sections that most closely link with their own curricula. To help teachers use this resource, a detailed index is included in the back, along with a selected bibliography. (Author/SG)
