Key Stage 3 teaching resources

KS3: ages 11-14Website

This module highlights the huge variations within Africa, both in terms of human development and the natural environment. The module includes contrasting case studies of Sudan and Ghana. Material on Sudan considers the country’s future after the civil war and the possibility of development through spending on public services. Ghana’s economy is highlighted as successful, thanks to natural resources, but still somewhat reliant on international aid.
