* In 1995 I wrote a text entitled Out of Africa and into the Classroom: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Teaching African Studies to Elementary and High School Students. It is featured inNorthwestern University's Africana Library. This document (above) is the key around which it all evolves. I would welcome assistance in getting this curriculum guide published.
I used this curriculum guide to train Chicago teachers in a workshop at the Chicago Museum for Contemporary Art and as a consultant developing teacher field-trip guide pieces at the Field Museum. It was also a central guide used for teaching African Studies and World Religions in my own 6th grade classroom.
I can guarantee you, most adults don't even know these perimeters.
