Have students complete "Africa - What Do You Know?"
Survey the class to
determine how many true/false responses there were. Distribute
"Africa...Answers" so students can correct their responses.
Ask if (and why)
they were surprised by the answers.
Have students individually complete "Something to Think
About", then compare
their responses in small groups. Ask each group to discuss the
relationship between their
true/false responses, and their responses to "Something to Think
Have students predict responses to the true or false quiz for
their parent's or
grandparent's generation. Survey parents or grandparents. Compare
actual responses to
student predictions. Discuss possible reasons for differences.
Have teams of students develop a plan for surveying magazine
shows, movies, and/or videotapes for content messages about Africa.
Share results of the
investigation with another class.
