The following is a common core-based lesson/worksheet on the rise of new imperialism in Africa. This lesson typically follows an introductory lesson on imperialism (also available on TPT – The Rise of New Imperialism worksheet). This worksheet includes a variety of student-centered activities designed to promote active engagement and critical thinking. Several activities include:
• Do now that serves to review from the previous lesson as well as set up the current one.
• Introduction to the Scramble for Africa – includes several thought provoking and critical thinking questions.
• Small group activity – Primary Sources on Pros and Cons of Imperialism in Africa – analysis of primary source documents – students complete a chart and answer several critical thinking questions.
• Class discussion follows.
