Little America in Liberia Lesson Plan
Grade levels: High school, grades 9-12
Concentration area: History, World Civilizations, Sociology
The Colonization and Emigration narrative states that, "the colonists made concerted efforts to create a sort of 'little America' in their new surroundings." Students will study the history of Liberia prior to and after the influx of immigrants of African Americans. Once they have investigated the cultural differences between the African Americans newly arrived and Liberians, they will then simulate an exchange between a newly arrived African American and an indigenous Liberian in search of common ground.
