Students explore Africa in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and consider the changes colonialism imposed on African governments, economies, and societies. Students consider some of the ways Africans responded to European colonialism.
Teaching about Historical and Contemporary Africa with the Choices Program
Participants will examine the student readings, lessons, and videos found in the Choices Program’s 10-day curriculum unit, Colonization and Independence in Africa. They will experience a lesson or two and discuss ways to implement the curriculum in the classroom. The webinar will also include a brief look at two other Choices Program curriculum titles—Nigeria: History, Identity, and Change and Freedom in Our Lifetime: South Africa’s Struggle.
At the end of the webinar, participants will receive a free three-week Digital Editions license to one of the three curriculum units. Participants will also receive a certificate of participation (PDPs available).
This webinar is appropriate for middle and high school world history, geography, social studies, and humanities teachers, including AP and IB educators.
