Geography--Study and teaching (Middle school);
Students will understand the concept of colonialism by comparing and contrasting America with Africa's colonial rule. Students will discover how this often contributes to contemporary conflict by igniting cultural differences. Sudan and South Sudan are used to illustrate contemporary conflict that is in part based upon the effects of a history of colonialism.
