Teaching Africa: Awesome Resources

Boston University's Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University has some great resources for high school world history teachers. (thanks to Anglea Lee for tweeting the link)

The Center's Case Studies in Colonialism lecture series are especially interesting and include two fascinating short lectures.

In one, Boston University Professor of History Diana Wylie, compares the responses of Algeria and Morroco to French colonialism. Professor Wylie uses images to demonstrate the different responses in which one was much more violent than the other.

In another lecture, Boston University Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the African Language Program Fallou Ngom,  explains how Senegal's unique history influenced its colonial experience.
