Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with some of the problems faced by African countries after gaining independence.

TIME:
1 class period

After reading an introductory paragraph with the class, each student answers a series of Thought Questions while assuming they are the leader of an African country that has recently won its independence. Their government is faced with a series of problems described on the lesson pages. Students must use their critical thinking skills and tell what they would do as their country's leader to improve each situation.

EXAMPLE:
(1) Your country has sizable deposits of petroleum, bauxite, copper, and iron ore. But there are few factories to turn out all of the manufactured products needed by the people. What should be done to increase the amount of manufactured goods in the country?


The activity concludes with a section entitled Problems Facing African Countries Today. Class members read through information that is true about present-day Africa. Some of the descriptions identify specific problems faced by countries in various parts of the continent. For each description that tells about a problem, students should write "yes" in the space. Otherwise, they will fill in "no."
