Pre-teaching: Cameroun

Consider developing a webquest for students that encourage them to explore Cameroun via video.  Offering students the choice of which videos to browse based on their interests will encourage students to experience the content rather than hunting for a correct answer.  Categories on the webquest my include geography, history, politics, language, music, food, or any other cultural items that you’d like to emphasize.
