I think that this lesson is a great way for students to learn about an African country and more about navigating the internet in general, but I believe that 10 weeks is just way too long for this assignment. I believe that making a brochure and doing some research, even with only meeting one time a week should not take longer than 3 weeks max. I believe that students would need to do a little work outside of class, but 10 weeks is just too long. Other than that, the overall lesson is great!
