African Resistance to Imperialism

Today, we are looking at the forms that Imperialism took, the methods strong countries used to manage their colonies and resistance from the African people.

In your textbook, there is a helpful chart on page 780 that outlines the various forms of imperialism and another that talks about management methods.  In class, I asked students to rewrite the definition for each form of imperialism in his or her own words on the back of today’s handout (which can be found below).

Then, students read Chapter 27 Section 2 in the text book and completed Guided Reading 27.2.

Finally, as a class we read and discussed a letter from Menelik II to the Caliph of Sudan urging him to unite against the Europeans.
