Students will learn the four directions, the world's main continents, and the regions and countries in Africa. At the end of class, each student will walk away with a few new countries from the continent that they can say and spell the names of.

4 files available upon enrollmentThere are 2 handouts to accompany the class, and a third optional one (Regions handout). You can either print out the ones you would like, or let me know if you will need an electronic alternative. Students will also need pen/pencil to write, and for students who will be printing out the materials, they will also need colouring tools (crayons, pencil crayons or markers) and a small item (about the size of a coin) that they can use as a 'game board chip'. You can bring materials to write notes on, however, there will not be a lot of notes. One website is provided for students who won't have access to printed materials and are needing an electronic alternative.
Learners will be assessed throughout class with games, discussion, review and new goal-setting.
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The concepts of slavery, colonization and apartheid are addressed as historical background where relevant.
