1. Ask your parents, siblings, and friends to respond to the question, “Quick, what five words come to your mind when I say ‘Africa’?” Record your findings and be prepared to discuss them with a partner in class.
2. After you or your class have finished part 1, take a look at the Current Events page. Read through some articles. Is there anything that you read that changes any of your own five words? Which articles? What made you change your mind? Is there anything that reaffirmed any of your own five words? What articles and why? Record your answers to those questions.
