The African Studies Association (ASA) Outreach Council

Mission Statement

The ASA Outreach Council promotes the teaching of Africa in K-16 classrooms, collaborates on an annual teachers’ workshop, and produces teacher resources for the proliferation of responsible teaching of area studies in U.S. schools.


Annual Teachers’ Workshop


At the annual African Studies Association Conference in late November/early December, the ASA Outreach Council organizes a teachers’ workshop that provides area educators with resources, lesson plans, and professional development on topics tailored to specific grade levels, subject areas, and curriculum frameworks. Registration for the annual teachers’ workshop is available in early fall. 


Outreach and Area Studies University Programs


The following universities have professional staff who support educators in developing resources and curricula related to Africa. Contact information for the associated staff members is available on the linked websites.
