The New Jersey Center for Civic Education and Civitas Senegal developed Lessons on Africa with support from the Civitas International Programs. The lessons explore geography, history, global connections, human rights, and democracy in Africa. For more information and access to the lessons, please visit the New Jersey Center for Civic Education's Africa Lessons page.
Through a Civitas International Programs partnership between California and Ghana, teachers in Los Angeles County, California have adapted and added to the lessons to teach K-12 students about the history, culture, and democracies in West Africa. Teacher-designed lessons include lesson plans and worksheets to teach about past and present cultural groups. Lesson subjects range from language arts to mathematics, art, and social studies.
