Area Studies of the Non-West: A Curriculum Guide. Grade Seven.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis.
The purpose of the course is to examine certain areas of the world with an emphasis on the geographic aspects and their relationships to the development of man's political, social, and economic institutions. This guide is designed to be useful to teachers as they outline courses and daily lesson plans. No attempt has been made to plan in detail for a teacher, however, content outlines are thorough. An effort has been made to acquaint the teacher with the use of generalizations as an aid to teaching pupils to think illustrating how he can formulate them. Reflective questions, like the generalizations, are offered only as suggestions for student evaluation. Any textbook can be used with the units: 1) The Soviet Realm: USSR; 2) South Asia: India; 3) East Asia: China and Japan; 4) Southeast Asia: Indonesia; 5) The Middle East: Egypt (United Arab Republic); and, 6) Sub-Saharan Africa: The Congo (Leopoldville). Introductory sections of the guide discuss its use, an orientation for the social studies, use of generalizations, academic freedom, goals and learning theory. (Author/DJB)
