Welcome to the Teaching Africa Outreach Program
The Outreach Program has one overarching priority–to promote teaching Africa in U.S. schools. We aim to help make the work of teachers easier while also encouraging the incorporation of African and African-related studies in every classroom. Contact us for support!
The Outreach Program maintains the Teaching Africa Library, a multifaceted collection of literature for young and adult readers, recommended textbooks for various levels of learners, hard-to-find award winning African films, and material culture kits. Resources available for teachers include curriculum guides and lesson plans, videos, slides, children’s books about Africa, African literature, maps, posters, games, speaker referral service, and material culture kits from Kenya and Tanzania. Many of our resources are featured in schools nationwide, such as the “How Big is Africa” poster pictured below.
