An Afrocentric curriculum for Congolese classrooms

Project (M.A., Education (Multicultural Education)) -- California State University, Sacramento, 2011.

An Afro-Eurocentric English Curriculum for Congolese Classrooms is a culturally responsive teaching Afrocentric curriculum rich in content and has been designed for active engagement and participation (Akoto, 1994; Ani, 1994; Lee, 1994; Murrell, 1993. 1997; Roberson, 1996). This multicultural curriculum blends both the Afrocentric culture and the Eurocentric culture, and uses modern approaches that utilize student-centered methodology to sustain students in continual learning modes inside and outside their classrooms. A well balanced education fosters political stability, tolerance, and better governance. In short, a good English education allows Congolese people to empower themselves to improve their lives as citizens of both their country and the world and communicate in English as a common language.
