The Teaching of Africa

July 6 to 15, 2006

An intensive introductory course in African Studies designed to help teachers and educators learn about Africa in a way that they can then teach confidently about its peoples, civilizations, and cultures. The course is also developed to help transform other professionals’ perspectives about the continent and to enable participants to identify and access unique resources about Africa. The program includes several hands-on cultural and artistic projects complemented by a full-day field trip to cultural sites in New York City.

Sponsored by the Council on African Studies, YCIAS, and the U.S. Department of Education through a Title VI National Resource Center grant.

Tuition for the New Haven program is $400. (A follow-up Fulbright trip to Ghana will be arranged for July 2007).
