PLANNING PROJECT FOR THE TEACHING OF ASIAN STUDIES IN NEW ENGLAND SECONDARY SCHOOLS. FINAL REPORT.
COLE, ALLAN B.
ASIAN STUDIES IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS HAVE PASSED THEIR PIONEER STAGE AND REQUIRE EXPANSION AND MORE DEPTH. THERE IS NEED FOR PREPARING TEACHERS BY SUMMER INSTITUTES, BY SERVICES WHICH SHOULD BE SUPPLIED BY A SERVICE CENTER, AND BY LEAVES OF ABSENCE FOR STUDIES AT GRADUATE CENTERS AND IN ASIA. THE TEACHING OF CHINESE AND JAPANESE LANGUAGES SHOULD BE SERIOUSLY UNDERTAKEN BY SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS OF GOOD APTITUDE--AT FIRST AT SOME 10 REGIONAL CENTERS IN NEW ENGLAND. AFTER MORE TEACHERS HAVE BEEN TRAINED, THESE LANGUAGES SHOULD BE OFFERED, AS ARE OTHERS, AS PART OF THE REGULAR CURRICULUM. IF THERE IS TO BE ADEQUATE GOVERNMENTAL SUPPORT, PERHAPS ONE-THIRD OF THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN NEW ENGLAND COULD COME TO PROVIDE SUCH INSTRUCTION. (THIS SURVEY DESCRIBES THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ASIAN STUDIES IN SECONDARY SCHOOL CURRICULA AND WHAT THE FURTHER NEEDS ARE. IT OUTLINES BY PHASES AND ACTIVITIES A PROPOSED SERVICE CENTER FOR TEACHERS OF ASIAN STUDIES IN NEW ENGLAND.) (AUTHOR)
