Designed to allow teachers and students to take a pro-active approach to learning about Cameroon, the guide is a starting point for research and discussion with information that enables students to identify patterns of culture and geography. In the first section, details on Africa and Cameroon provide information that can be personalized for each class depending on ages, other subjects being studied, and students' abilities and interests. The second section utilizes questions to encourage students to look beyond the differences in Cameroonian society and culture and focus on the similarities with their own communities. Produced and available from the World Wise School Office, a videotape, "Destination: Cameroon," compliments this section and offers additional instructional material. The third section includes 11 activities and 9 worksheets to give students an opportunity to learn more about Cameroon through research, by working in teams, and by problem solving. The final section lists 38 additional resources on Cameroon and Africa and 13 African studies resource centers. Maps of Cameroon, Africa, and the world show country locations and countries where Peace Corps Volunteers serve. (CK)
