Students explore Africa in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and consider the changes colonialism imposed on African governments, economies, and societies. Students consider the ways Africans responded to European colonialism.
Colonization and Independence in Africa
Join the Choices Program for a session at the California Council for the Social Studies Conference! Explore four African case studies that examine the contested nature of colonization and independence. Walk through lessons that build historical thinking skills and identify how “perspective” impacts historical inquiry.
All participants receive a one-year license to the Choices Program’s Digital Edition of the curriculum.
This interactive workshop is appropriate for middle and high school history, social studies, and humanities teachers, including AP and IB educators.
