A&HW 5050.003 (CRN 51863)
Intended primarily for pre-service and in-service secondary teachers, this course will examine the broad themes of African history and a variety of current issues that demand attention in today’s classrooms.  The course will draw heavily on film resources, including feature and documentary films, and consider key pedagogical issues concerning the use of film in
the secondary setting. Students will also have the opportunity to explore ways that service learning can be used to promote student engagement with the issues raised in the course. Those enrolled will create original curricular materials for use in their own classrooms. Please note that this course can be counted toward the content requirement for students enrolled
in programs in Teaching of Social Studies.
