This video guide was developed for teachers and students participating in the Peace Corps World Wise Schools program. The primary purpose of the study/video series is to enhance each class's correspondence with its Peace Corps Volunteer and help students gain a greater understanding of regions and cultures different from their own. The specific purpose of this video guide on Poland is to provide teachers and students with a structured approach to learning about people and places in Poland. The specific goals for this guide are to present basic information on the geography of Poland; to present basic information on the political and economic changes currently taking place in Poland; and to introduce two aspects of Polish culture: history and symbols. Activities have been designed for three grade levels: A (grades 3-5), B (grades 6-9), and C (grades 10-12). For ease of selection the activities have been categorized first by grade level and then by topic. The guide concludes with a 34-item resource list, a special vocabulary list, and a description of the videotape contents. (EH)
