A six-week summer institute for twenty-five school teachers, to be held at Cape Town and other locations throughout South Africa, on that country's geography, history, and social institutions.

A six-week summer institute to be conducted in South Africa. The institute will feature a rigorous academic program of lectures at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, extensive field study throughout South Africa, and a thorough follow-up program. As most American teachers are not academically prepared to teach about Africa, this program in South Africa will enable the twenty-five participants to gain cognitive and affective knowledge of South Africa and its people. The teachers will develop curriculum materials to use in their classrooms when they teach South Africa and thus promote the teaching of the humanities.
