Reviewer Comments:

This is an excellent collection of resources for teaching about current issues facing Nigeria. The lessons are geared towards increasing subject matter understanding and developing important academic skills. Each activity is full of accurate content, thoughtful instructional strategies, and great handouts. Some of the highlights include engaging slide shows on the impact of oil on the Niger Delta, a research assignment on historical and current conflict in Nigeria, and a simulation that has students take on different roles of those involved in the conflicts around oil in the region. Not only do the lessons include materials that can be used right away, they also have a whole series of weblinks to other relevant content. The materials are based on Washington State Standards around content based assessments and could be easily integrated into classes around the country studying such topics as global issues, energy policy, or economics.
