Misunderstandings and biased views
It is very difficult to generalize about Sub-Saharan African countries because environments, political systems, and ethnic groups are so diverse; thus, it is often the subject of misrepresentation and unwarranted, often negative, generalizations.
Before you start reading the textbook for this region, write down several characteristics (generalizations) about it.
After you have read the chapter and thought about the material, look at your list again. Has your list changed? In what way? Why do you think the lists are different?
See the Discussion Rubric for additional information and grading criteria.
