Our reading raises many challenges facing Africa today. The Solutions Project is undertaken to address, in some measure, issues raised in our reading and research about Africa.
Students will identify a common issue to address and work in teams, and in collaboration with exisiting organizations to address that issue, perhaps including Students 4 Africa, the Registered Student Organization (RSO) created by students in a previous semester African literature class.
Throughout the semester students will research, design and carry out one or more projects. Each class sessions will devote some time to facilitate work and collaboration, though most work on the solution projects will take place outside of class.
The solutions projects should have the following features:
All students are expected to demonstrate the finest skills of collaboration and team work.
At the hour of the Final Exam, each student will submit a three-page analysis of their work and propose a final grade for the project, subject to professor modification.
