Abstract:This book introduces innovative strategies for teaching about Africa. The contributors address misconceptions about Africa and Africans, incorporate the latest technologies of teaching and learning, and give practical advice for creating successful lesson plans, classroom activities, and study abroad programmes. Teachers in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences will find helpful hints and tips on how to bridge the knowledge gap and motivate understanding of Africa in a globalizing world. The 22 chapters are arranged into three parts: 1. Situating Africa: concurrent-divergent rubrics of meaning (contributions by Jennifer E. Coffman, Todd Cleveland, Kathleen Smythe, Gary Marquardt, Trevor R. Getz, Ryan Ronnenberg, Carl Death, Harry Nii Koney Odamtten, Matthew Waller, Durene I. Wheeler and Jeanine Ntihirageza); 2. African arts: interpreting the African 'text' (contributions by Catherine Kroll, Renée Schatteman, Jean Ngoya Kidula, Caleb Corkery, Linda M. Johnston and Oumar Chérif Diop, Lucie Viakinnou-Brinson); 3. Application of approaches: experiencing African particulars (contributions by Amy C. Finnegan, Babacar M'Baye, Daniel J. Paracka, Jr., James Ellison, Amy C. Finnegan, Julian Jane Atim and Michael Westerhaus, Solomon Negash and Julian M. Bass, and Toyin Falola. [ASC Leiden abstract]
