Module Three

Examining Africa’s Diversity

Overview

Module Three: Examining Africa’s Diversity is a collection of images meant to illustrate Africa’s diversity, rich history, and global connections, and to question some of the common stereotypes about Africa. The lesson has one main computer-assisted activity that is covered in two days. This activity is a series of maps of the continent studded with “thumbnail” pictures, which you can enlarge. The pictures express a particular theme for that page, including: geography, culture, religion, making a living, transportation, and where people live. Each image is preceded by a question meant to encourage you to think critically about the images they see. You should answer the questions in your Activity Journal in preparation for discussion.
