Social Studies Course III. India: A Cultural Area. Teacher's Manual and Readings.
Leppert, Ella C.
This secondary level instructional unit on India is the second of three cultural areas comprising Course III, "Cultural Areas of Today's World," and follows the first sequential social studies unit on Africa described in SO 003 516. A major objective is for the student to comprehend the characteristics and value structure of India and, more specifically, understand that cultures have an internal consistency, that each sub-system influences and affects other parts, that culture is made up of values giving direction to life styles, and that values can be changed, but only when they fit with the existing value structure. Techniques focus upon building on the concepts, generalizations, and skills of previous courses. Five units describe India's physical environment; social and cultural life and economy; political life and struggle for independence; and current problems. Suggested instructional materials include book, slide, and film bibliographies; student readings; and lists of recommended classroom activities. Related are: ED 048 062, SO 003 169 through SO 003 175, SO 003 515 through SO 003 517. (Author/SJM)
