Pan African Studies Parent letter and Syllabus
The New Visions Social Studies Curriculum is a full scope of Global History and Geography course and the United States History and Government course as set out by the New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework. Through the investigation and analysis of primary and secondary sources, students have the opportunity to think critically, and to read, write, and speak like historians, while simultaneously honing the literacy and critical thinking skills necessary for both the New York State Regents exams and post-secondary coursework.
Pan African Studies is a blend of Social Studies and English Language Arts skills-based instruction on the people of African descent. The course uses text books, book excerpts, media and online resources to examine African existence from early humans to modern day. It is designed to educate, inform and spark interest (both teacher and student) into the history and culture of African Kingdoms, Western Africa, African Diaspora and Africans in the Americas, historically and modern. This course refers to people of African descent as “Black” (and not African-American) in order to emphasize a global viewpoint.
