Africa's Natural Resources -- A Curse??

As a follow-up to our lesson in class today, you will read an article and answer some related questions about natural resources and their use in Africa. The article's author poses an interesting, and controversial question: Are Africa's natural resources a curse?

The article is entitled "Africa's Resource Curse." The link should take you to a pdf file. The first two pages are the article. The third contains 8 questions related to the article. Answer each question on loose leaf paper. This assignment is worth 20 points and is due on your desk at the start of Thursday's class. You do not have to print out the article or the questions, but you may do so if you find that it is easier.

Remember: We will have a test on Friday. It will include all information we have covered in the Africa unit. Check back later for a complete list of what will be on the test, as well as study recommendations.

Please do not hesitate to e-mail me if you have questions.
