The purpose of this quarterly publication from the Asian Studies Project is to promote increased attention to Asian Studies in elementary and secondary education. This issue of the newsletter contains introductory comment on current affairs as well as two main articles: "On the Study of World Cultures" by Dr. Kishorkant Yajnik of India and "Redefining China for the High School and College Curriculum" by Ronald Suleski. Announcements of conferences, a Resource File (available study aids, curriculum guides, and free materials), a Multi-Media Materials section, and book reviews are also included. A separate section, Asia in the Elementary School, gives curriculum news for this age level and features, in the Booknook by Sara Little, an annotated bibliography of childrens books on Asian topics. This winter issue annually announces summer study opportunities in the United States and in Asia. FOCUS is offered free of charge as a service to the educational community, however, voluntary contributions are solicited to help defray expenses. Those interested in receiving the newsletter regularly should request that their name be placed on the mailing list. (Author/JSB)
