Product Description

Have you ever wondered what your students' perceptions of Africa were before teaching your culture unit on Africa, or teaching about African history or geography? This FREE digital resource for use with Google Forms™ in Google Classroom™ is an easy, no-prep activity that explores African media portrayals through the perspective of a prominent African cultural leader, Angélique Kidjo.

The African continent is an often underrepresented subject in schools, and middle and high school students need to be challenged in their views on what African countries are actually like versus how they are portrayed in Western culture.

Why You Need This Activity:

What better way to break down stereotypes than to hear about the perceptions of Africa from the perspective of its people?

This powerful 25-minute interview with Angelique Kidjo from Benin will inspire and challenge your students to think differently about African countries and to step outside their own cultural perceptions to practice empathy & perspective.

Before you teach your content on African culture, society, history, or geography, be sure your students hear from its people.

About Kidjo:

  • multiple Grammy awards
  • 20+ years in music
  • UN Ambassador of Goodwill
  • advocate for education and human rights

Digital Resource

The interview comes with 12 questions ready-to-use with Google Forms™ in Google Classroom™, or easily shareable as a form.

This activity is about 45-60 minutes, and can be done independently. Makes a great subwork assignment!

---Ideal for upper middle school or high school---
