The Exploring Africa! curriculum is divided into Units, Modules, and Learning Activities. Each unit covers a major topic or theme in the study of Africa. Each unit is divided into thematic, disciplinary, regional, or country modules. Each module is comprised of four to eight learning activities. The learning activities in each module vary in length of time needed for completion. Consequently, each module will take between two and five standard 50-minute class periods to complete. Teachers are free to select one or two learning activities from a module or to complete all of the learning activities.

Second, a full-text archive is provided of back issues of 11 scholarly journals published in Africa in the social sciences and humanities.

Introduction The Special Collections at the Toronto Reference Library reveal a wonderful diversity of focus, form, age and content. Together, they form a cultural legacy that began in the late nineteenth century with the opening of Toronto's first public library. They continue to grow through acquisition and donation to ensure that users today and tomorrow have free access to their cultural and literary heritage. From the humble to the exquisite, each item in the collection has been treasured and preserved, and its story maintained by the librarians of the Toronto Public Library. In celebration of the Toronto Reference Library's thirtieth year at 789 Yonge Street, we proudly present a special exhibition from these collected works.
